Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
Hannah Pritchard's life is changed forever when her family is killed by British soldiers and Iroquois Indians. She manages to survive, but now she is without family except a grandmother who lives far away. When she manages to find her grandmother, she learns her last relative has gone "home" to England. Driven by a desire for revenge on her family's killers, Hannah disguises herself in her brother's clothes and becomes "Jack," the cabin boy on the privateer ship, the Sea Hawk. Hannah faces dangers from the sea, from the British, and even from some on the ship. Can she manage to conceal her identity at such closer quarters? Whom can she trust among her shipmates, and what will be most important to her as she faces a choice between revenge and the work of building a new country? End material gives historic context for the story and provides resources for additional study. This book would be a good addition to textbook study of the American Revolution. Reviewer: Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger

Gr 5-8- When Hannah Pritchard's family is killed on their farm by British soldiers and Iroquois Indians, the 14-year-old narrowly escapes to Boston. There, Revolutionary War fever is high, and Hannah vows to avenge the death of her relatives. She eventually makes her way to a privateer ship, where she disguises herself as a boy and works in the kitchen. She has many high-seas adventures while helping to steal loot in the name of the patriots' cause, all the while struggling to keep her identity a secret. This simple, straightforward tale is propelled by a fast-moving plot. Historical and nautical terms are explained well, and a note rounds out the text. This novel is more accessible than L. A. Meyer's more mature and lengthier "Bloody Jack" series (Harcourt).-Kristen Oravec, Stephen S. Wise Elementary School, Los Angeles
