A vicious captain, a mutinous crew -- and a young girl caught in the middle

Not every thirteen-year-old girl is accused of murder, brought to trial, and found guilty. But I was just such a girl, and my story is worth relating even if it did happen years ago. Be warned, however: If strong ideas and action offend you, read no more. Find another companion to share your idle hours. For my part I intend to tell the truth as I lived it.

The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle is a young adult historical fiction novel by the American author Avi. It takes place during the transatlantic crossing of a ship from England to America in the 19th century. The book chronicles the evolution of the title character as she is pushed outside her naive existence and learns about life aboard a ship.

Fascinating story, wonderful protagonist, great Author. April 7, 2011
After reading numerous of books (I read over a hundred books during the school year) I have to say this is one of my all time favorites. This book is filled with adventure and excitement. As for the author, Avi has written many excellent novels, and has earned a reputation for high standards. I find it absolutely amazing how he captured a perfect mind of a girl like me! Not a girl from the 21st century. No, not a girl that by the age of 7 is thinking about how 'hot' the boy in her class is, or how to cuss and get her parents upset. I'm talking about a REAL girl with hopes and Dreams and following her senses, being brave, and listening to what her heart desires.
If you loved this novel it may be true that you are a 'young soul of justice' !!!
