Andre Reading Club Redux --Scarface
#1
Scarface, seventeen-year-old serving under the callous, cruel, heartless, notorious Captain Jonathan Cheap had no idea of who were his parents were and where he came from. All he knew was the exciting, perilous lifestyle known as piracy. Vicious, and dastardly, Captain Cheap, one of the pirate lords of Tortuga, was also BOLD. Insane is what the other lords thought of Cheap's latest scurrilous scheme-- an attack upon his life-long enemy Sir Robert Scarlett and her Majesty's fleet at Bridgetown. Could this audacious surprise attack actually catch the British fleet unawares? And what part did Scarface have to play in Cheap's grand scheme of revenge? And what did the secrets of his past have to do with his chances for survival? Move over Jack Sparrow, there's a new kid in town! A fun read, well written, you can see the action as you read. Later Kind Folks--Paul
Frontiers of any type, physical or mental are but a challenge to our breed. Nothing can stop th questing of man, not even man. If we will it, not only the wonders of space, but the very stars are ours

This has always been my favorite Andre Norton book. Ok, it was the first one I ever read. But it has pirates, orphans, the British fleet, and plot twists. There are several major plot twists.
