    When reading this book I was struck by what appeared to be the author's intimacy with those days and experiences! Shesurely captured the feel of things and brought them to life. I am impressed and deeply admiring of her talent. Who better to know the internal workings of a thirteen year old boy you?! (Luckily for my son, the author is his middle school teacher). Showing too that though times change the coming of age and the working of the mind on the cusp of adulthood do not. I can tell too, that her research was impeccable....................but the food, the sounds, the smells those took the the talent of a gifted writer. I salute and congratulate Ms. Verrico again on her fine accomplishment.

    I loved this book! I agree with previous reviewer in that it is a fun and wholesome story. This book is going on my Christmas shopping list for all the kids I give gifts to. I've already shared it with a couple of teen boys and they gave it a thumbs up. That alone makes it worth 5 stars! I'm also passing it on to my local library. I hope there will be a sequel.

    Privateer’s Apprentice is a fast paced adventure story that is wholesome, fun and great for kids. Protagonist Jameson Cooper is the embodiment of the typical American teenager, naïve, aloof, quick to complain and even quicker to talk back. A reluctant hero for the reluctant reader, if you know a 13 year old, you know a Jameson! The characters were highly developed, given the short length, and the writing was vivid. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I would have rated it higher but I feel as though the book could have been longer. I finished it in 2 nights and my son, the reluctant reader, finished it in 3. He loved it and was genuinely disappointed when I told him that there wasn't a sequel.

    “Privateer’s Apprentice” is a fast-paced, action packed adventure sure to capture the imagination of readers of all ages. New author Susan Verrico has a talent for weaving (in intricate detail) the journey of Jameson Cooper, a captivating unforgettable character. I wait eagerly for what I hope will be many sequels to come.
