PIRATE ISLAND blurb:
A thrice cursed island, a legendary pirate treasure, and one not-so-brave boy. What could possibly go wrong?
For centuries, the whereabouts of Captain William Kiddâs lost pirate treasure has remained a mystery. When Billyâs best friend, Andy, proposes they look for it on nearby Pirate Island, Billy thinks itâs just another one of their crazy adventures. Itâs usually Billy who ends up in trouble as a result, but he goes along for the rideâ¦like always. The more he delves into the life and death of Kidd, the more he thinks the treasure is real and that it might be buried on the small island in Long Island Sound. Billyânope, call him Williamâbecomes obsessed with the captain of the same first name. He even believes heâs possessed by Kiddâs restless soul. Now he and the spirit of a long-dead pirate are leading the crazy adventure on Pirate Island. And what they find is far bigger than the treasure they imagined.
