Capt. Hook was an incredibly fun book. I picked it up at the library once because it had a ridiculous cover that I loved. Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. This is a story of high adventure and mischief. The main character is both awful and loveable all at once. This book will make you laugh and keep you reading.
Here is the book description from Amazon:
With his long black curls, a shadowy family tree, and an affinity for pet spiders, James Matthew bears little resemblance to his starched-collar, blue-blooded peers at Eton. Dubbed King Jas., he stops at nothing to become the most notorious underclassman in the prestigious school’s history. For James, sword fighting, falling in love with an Ottoman Sultana, and challenging the Queen of England are all in a day’s skullduggery. But when he sets sail on a ship with a mysterious mission, King Jas.’ dream of discovering a magical island quickly turns into an unimaginable nightmare.
Read it! It’s awesome!
