From the publisher
Not every thirteen-year-old girl is accused of murder, brought to trial and found guilty...
Charlotte Doyle is just such a girl and she swears to tell the truth in all its detail. It happened during the summer of 1832 aboard a ship called the Seahawk. The only passenger on the long Atlantic Ocean crossing, Charlotte found herself between the madness of a ruthless captain and the rage of a mutinous crew. This is her terrifying account of that fateful voyage.
