I thought if you could do Throwback Thursday on Instagram, Tumblr, or the Disney Channel, why not here? So, Throwback Thursday here at Quintessentially Bookish is going to feature books I loved as a child or teen. This week’s selection is:
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi
A vicious captain, a mutinous crew —
and a young girl caught in the middle.
An ocean voyage of unimaginable consequences… Not every thirteen-year-old girl is accused of murder, brought to trial, and found guilty. But I was just such a girl, and my story is worth relating even if it did happen years ago. Be warned, however: If strong ideas and action offend you, read no more. Find another companion to share your idle hours. For my part I intend to tell the truth as I lived it
I loved this book as a child. I read it over and over again, imagining running away to be a seas captain myself. Charlotte is such an interesting character and I loved her spirit. Even with all the terrible things that happen to her, she remains strong and true to herself. This is a great book for any young girl (or boy) to read.
