As the lone "young lady" on a transatlantic voyage in 1832, Charlotte learns that the captain is murderous and the crew rebellious.

    L'illa del tresor de Robert Louis Stevenson (Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: In both, the protagonist sets out to sea and must show great courage to rectify a grievous mistake that exposes themselves and the crew to great danger. Both excellent reads for the nautically-minded.

    Bloody Jack: Being an Account of the Curious Adventures of Mary "Jacky" Faber, Ship's Boy de L. A. Meyer (Caramellunacy, la_librarian)
    Caramellunacy: Both of these adventure stories are about a strong girl proving her worth on board a sailing ship. Charlotte shows the crew her mettle despite the fact that she's a girl, and Jacky disguises herself as a boy to escape detection. Both are great stories for those who love nautical stories.… (més)

Wow, so many things happen in this book that are really, really messed up. I do understand intellectually that children as we now know them did not really exist as such in the 1800s, but to listen to it acted out is a whole 'nother level of harshness. Also, the world truly sucked for girls/women, people of color and sailors. Not, however the rip-roaring adventure I hoped it would be, too realistic for that. Well narrated, though. ( )

I read this historical fiction in elementary school, but forgot most of the details. It has a gripping plot about how in the 1830s, a 13-year-old girl from a wealthy American family sailed on a ship from London to America. She befriended the sailors on the ship and became wary of the ship's cruel captain. Because of the captain's oppression of the crew, she began to dress as a boy to work along side the crew and help them. Eventually the captain met his doom falling into the sea, and the girl became captain of the ship. After arriving in America and returning to the life of her well-to-do family, she realized she can no longer feel at home with her family, so she returned back to the ship and its crew. Lots of adventure. Written well, so the book is hard to put down. Many details about how a ship looked and how sailors operated in the 1830s. The story touches on the issue of gender (because the girl wore sailor's clothing and cut her hair when she worked on the ship) and race (because one of the sailors was African.) The captain repeatedly verbally attacked the girl as "unnatural," whereas the girl repeatedly protested that she was not unnatural, but "unusual." That's a very interesting exchange I didn't catch when reading the book as a young girl. ( )

"The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle" is a Newberry Honor book originally published in 1990. The story is set in 1832 when a 13 year old girl, Charlotte Doyle, boards a ship from England bound for the US where is meant to rejoin her family. She was meant to be traveling with other families but finds herself alone with only the ships crew and captain. She soon finds herself immersed in conflict between the crew and the cruel captain, a conflict that leads to her joining the crew and ultimately to her being put on trial for murder. This is a unique story that centers on the voice of strong heroine. I believe upper elementary and middle school students would enjoy it as it has plenty of action and suspense. All of the nautical information could also make for an interesting research project and topic.

For years, Avi's books have been floating around my to-be-read "raffle". Finally, I managed to read at least one book.
This is a story about a girl named Charlotte who became the only girl passenger aboard a ship with all-make crew. I like how the author wrote an authentic language that's set in its intended period. If you're into books with strong female lead on an adventure by the sea, check this out! ( )

A childhood fav. I am grateful to this story for showing me that you decide how to live your life. Either by new action or submission, both painful. ( )

Prologue
Not every thirteen-year-old girl is accused of murder, brought to trial, and found guilty.
Just before dusk in the late afternoon of June 16, 1832, I found myself walking along the crowded docks of Liverpool, England, following a man by the name of Grummage.

But when a ship is upon the sea, there's but one who rules. As God is to his people, as king to his nation, as father to his family, so is captain to his crew. Sheriff. Judge and jury. He is all. (page 34)
