Description: former school copy with internal markings, light edge wear; Avi's The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle is an adventure tale told by someone who really didn't think her life would be much of an adventure at all. Miss Charlotte Doyle, a thirteen-year-old girl from Barrington Better School for Girls, wanted nothing more than to become a proper young lady who wears fancy hats and has fabulous hair (OK, who doesn't want that?). Once she boards a ship to America, though, she finds out that a life on the Seahawk is far more thrilling than wearing a frilly dress. Donning boys' clothing, Charlotte learns to climb the rigging and handle a knife. She also becomes involved in the thrilling machinations underway on the ship: Murder! Mutiny! Mayhem! These are not the things Charlotte learned about in school. Needless to say, this book is a bona fide page-turner - completely and utterly action-packed.
