The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a wonderful spine tingling and page turning adventure for all those pirate mad 9-12 year olds. It is masterfully plotted and blends pirate legend, a ghost story and supernatural mystery into an enormously satisfying adventure.

Synopsis

Ghost Ship by Dietlof Reiche

Twelve-year-old Vicki is facing another long, boring summer waitressing at her father’s seaside restaurant. But everything changes when the bay goes dry and a mysterious ship appears - an eighteenth-century square-rigger called the Storm Goddess.

With tourists swarming, a pushy reporter nosing around, and ghosts appearing on deck, it’s up to Vicki and her new friend Peter to find a way aboard the Storm Goddess to unlock her ancient secrets.
