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
