But life for Egg is always a rollercoasterand this rip-roaring rollicking and fast-paced read should satisfy any young reader looking for pirate adventure.

SynopsisChronicles of Egg: Deadweather and Sunrise by Geoff Rodkey
Deadweather, a sweaty little pirate-infested island, is home to Egg, thirteen years old and prey to a pair of cruel and stupid older siblings. But when Egg's family disappears in a freak accident, he finds himself living on Sunrise island with the glamorous Pembroke family and their feisty daughter Millicent. Finally, life seems perfect. Until someone tries to throw him off a cliff. Suddenly, Egg is lost in a world of cut-throat pirates and powerful villains. Only Millicent - and a one-handed, possibly deranged cabin boy - can help him as he hurtles into the deadliest adventure of his life...
