Review of Privateer’s Apprentice by Susan Verrico

Set in Charles Towne, Carolina Territory in 1712, Privateer's Apprentice tells the story of thirteen-year old Jameson Cooper, son of a printer, who has been thrown in jail after the death of both of his parents. Sold to the town baker, Jameson is kidnapped by a brigand of privateers working for Queen Anne before he can even begin his indentured servitude. Adventures on the high seas follow, and Jameson must prove his worth to the men who eventually become his "family." In the end, it is up to Jameson to use his wits and education to save his captain from death.

While there are many adventure and Fantasy novels in libraries out right now, Privateer’s Apprentice, provides us with a story in the real world with no true Fantasy gimmicks. Verrico knows how to write in a heartfelt way and the storyline for Jameson an orphan becoming a Privateer’s Apprentice is full of awful danger and courage. The Captain is a character of mystery and his second-in-command in Solitaire Peep is just as illusionary. While the book itself is enjoyable in a nice pace it’s a story with a simple theme of growing up and looking to the future while always remembering and cherishing your past.

A wonderful cast of strange characters and adventure set in a historically fictitious world is what makes this book one to be embraced by anyone.

Overall: Amazing read!
Genre: Historical Fiction, Adventure
