Famous Pirates Blackbeard Jack Sparrow Charlotte Doyle??
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle On a long journey from England to Rhode Island in 1802, 12-year-old Charlotte changes from a prim and proper girl to a swashbuckling mate of a mutinous crew and is accused of murder by the captain. Awash with shipboard activity, intense feelings, and a keen sense of time and place, the story is a throwback to good old- fashioned adventure yarns on the high seas.
