Pirates Captain’s Daughter by Eve Bunting

I definitely recommend this book! Even if I totally hate the cliff hanger ending. Anyways, this book is about a 12 year old girl who just had her imgres-1mother pass away. She also figures out that her father has been hiding who he really is this whole time. A pirate captain. So since he has to go back to his ship, Catherine decides (instead of going with her aunt) to come aboard his ship. Well, women aren’t allowed on the ship. So Catherine finds herself aboard “The Reprisal” pretending to be a musician boy. It’s all going well till she meets an attractive boy aboard the ship. Then things just go down hill from that. And like I said it’s a very good book except you never know if she dies or not which really annoys me. So if you’re like me and hate cliff-hangers stray away from this book!
