The Accidental Pirate

Authored by Jay Giess

Sixteen-year-old Tom Waters doesn't want to be a pirate. But after meeting an attractive girl on a pirate-themed cruise ship and agreeing to hold on to an ancient coin for her, he finds himself mysteriously transported to a sloop in the middle of the 1692. While Tom tries to get back to the twenty-first century, he has to learn how to be a pirate-cutlass battling, cursing, rum drinking, mumblety-peg, and just staying afloat on the high seas-otherwise he might not last a week, much less three hundred years.

Tom encounters pirates like Scar, who knows where he's headed: "Call it Davey Jones's locker, call it hell, but I made my choice long ago. I've lived two years longer than I expected and enjoyed some mighty fine ladies and rum over that time." Meanwhile, Jen Goodwin tries to join Tom in the past and help him return to the present day, but a faulty spell book, a clever college professor, and a stubborn gift shop owner all get in her way.

The Accidental Pirate is a twenty-first century coming of age story, but it's set in the seventeenth century. It's a tale with romance, but not too much. But most of all it's a fast moving adventure yarn. Arrgh!
