5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, set in exotic location, 8 Jun. 2009
I got a copy of this for my niece, who is tired of 'magic & wizard' books, then couldn't resist reading it myself (we bond over books).

I really appreciated the authenticity of the local details about Sea Gypsies and modern day piracy - the setting is quite unlike any I've found before in a children's book.
Hanna and Ned are very real, normal kids who find themselves in the midst of an amazing adventure. Having got to like them in this book, I can't wait for a follow up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Britain's Bravest, 15 Jan. 2008
I read this book as a child and have remembered it ever since. Now I'm buying copies for my nieces, so that they know about the sacrifices British women have made over the years. Particularly since Violette Szabo died so young.
