From the Publisher:

A mysterious broken sword transports a modern teen through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Stranded in the past, and surrounded by strangers, she is forced to sign on as crew. But a pirate's life is bloody and brief, and as she learns about the dark magic that brought her there, she forms a desperate scheme to get home?one that risks everything in a duel to the death with a villainous pirate captain!

Annotation:
A Caribbean vacation with her family turns into a time-travel adventure in this sporty historical adventure. A passionate fencer, when 16-year-old Jill Archer spies a rusty rapier tip on the beach, she immediately picks it up and holds onto it. Soon, she's sent back in time 300 years, Jill finds herself at the mercy of a female pirate captain, Margery Cooper, and her crew. Realizing she has no choice but to join the crew to survive, Jill finds a friend in crewmember Henry, who teaches her how to handle a real sword and finds that the moves are quite similar to fencing. Captain Cooper is in search of her arch pirate rival, Edmund Blane, and Jill soon discovers that he might be the only way for her to get home.

Praise

"Through her assertive, appealing protagonist and a satisfying plot that sheds light on lesser-known aspects of pirate life, Vaughn introduces readers to an intriguing sport with an ancient pedigree." 02/15/2011
