In the summer of 1768, an 11 year-old butcher's apprentice named Nicholas Young climbed aboard a ship and hid himself from the captain and the crew.  The H.M.S. Endeavour,  captained by James Cook, was on a secret mission to discover an unknown continent at the bottom of the globe.  During the three-year voyage, Nick encounters hardships, is awed by new discoveries, and earns the respect of the gentlemen on board especially Joseph Banks, a botanist.  How will Nick react when disaster strikes?  And who is Lady  Jane?  Read Stowaway to find out.   (Amy Schaffner,  Northrich Elementary Richardson, Texas)
