This adventure is not for the feint-of-heart, to say the least. It is a swashbuckling tale where the unlikely hero discovers a talent for lying...or storytelling...and a knack for finding and getting out of trouble. Tom O'Connor leaves his mother an half-sister, Feo, on his home island of Nevis and sails the Carribean and Atlantic, sets sugar plantation slaves free, narrowly escapes his hanging for freeing the slaves, serves on a pirate ship and loses a finger. What else is there for a boy to do in 1639?  (Melissa Bowman,, Armstrong Middle School)
