Children's Literature - Patrice Russo Belotte
Hannah "Jack" Pritchard struggles to keep up with the men who surround her on the Sea Hawk, a ship that sails from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, during the American Revolution. Driven to avenge the death of her family, Hannah has disguised herself as young "Jack" to aid in the war against the British. A continuation of Bonnie Pryor's Hannah Pritchard: Pirate of the Revolution, Captured! finds Hannah at the mercy of British soldiers. Escaping from a battle at sea, Hannah and her shipmates take the stolen treasure to secure it on an island. Before long the friends are captured by the men from a British prison ship and taken to New York, to suffer in deteriorating conditions as British prisoners. Fighting sickness and hunger, they manage to escape and find refuge in a nearby barn. After their escape, the friends make their way to a shipyard. While bartering for supplies they learn that the working people who keep the shipyard going are under close watch by British soldiers. Without hesitation, Hannah and her friends create a plan to attack the soldiers, commandeer the ship, and finally return to Portsmouth. Reviewer: Patrice Russo Belotte
School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—This sequel to Hannah Pritchard: Pirate of the Revolution (Enslow, 2008) is easy to read and fast moving. Courageous, strong, and determined are just a few of the adjectives that describe the 14-year-old protagonist. The year is 1779, and Hannah, posing as a boy named Jack, works on a ship owned by an American privateer. She and other crew members are eventually captured by a British prison ship. As they follow Hannah and fellow captives during their imprisonment, children will understand the deplorable conditions, including spoiled food and cruelty. After escaping, Hannah and her companions take a British vessel and head out to find treasure in the Carolinas. The lively and descriptive narrative will hold readers' interest. A short section discusses the history of the period. Students who read this novel will learn some history and be engaged at the same time.—Lana Miles, Jackson Elementary School, Rosenberg, TX
