The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi
This book is about a girl named Charlotte who is put on a ship with a bunch of pirates. One day one of the crew is murdered, and she is blamed for it. Her friend, Zachariah, who was accused earlier of something else, helps her try to find out who really murdered the man. Once she finds out who it was, it is quite a struggle to get the truth out because she doesn't know whom to trust. Finally she tells someone, and then he betrays her. The thing I like most about this story is the way she had to do the dare so that she could become the crew's friend. I loved the way the book was written too. Sylvia H.
