Author Info
Kristiana Gregory
Kristiana Gregory writes historical fiction and is best known for her Dear America series. She does a great deal of research for her books, visiting the places she's going to write about and finding out useful information such as what the weather was like, or what people thought about, by looking through journals and almanacs of that time. Kristiana feels that her readers can relate to the characters in her book because the problems they deal with--learning to make good decisions or getting through hard times--are universal.
From the Publisher
Editors Note The year is 1818, and Monterey, California, is a peaceful coastal village... until pirate ships appear on the horizon. Eleven-year-old Carlito and his friends are excited. They can't wait for the ships to arrive, so they can see what real pirates look like. But once the pirates drop anchor, they attack. And on one terrible night, Carlito witnesses a murder -- his father's. When Carlito climbs on the ship looking for revenge, the ship sets sail. Now he's a stowaway. And he can't stay hidden for long. Can Carlito bring his father's murderers to justice? Or will he suffer the same horrible fate?
