A Pirate's Time Served

A Pirate's Time Served: Thar Be Parole For Good Behavior, Argh, Argh!


Log line: The ghost of pirate Black Bart joins forces with two over-privileged teens and their relatives on St. Croix in a modern-day quest to discover priceless buried treasure and along the way, their life's mission under the most unlikely and dangerous circumstances. Careful what you wish for... Sarah Schilling's twelve year-old brother is wicked smart. But this? Pure genius. Brian snagged an invitation to spend the summer with their favorite aunt and uncle on St. Croix. Uncle Jack tells them, There will probably be some swimming, some diving. We like to run. There's a range, so maybe you ll learn to shoot. Cooking. Your Aunt Helen is a classically trained chef. You knew that, right? There's the Mallard seaplane, so maybe you ll learn something about flying. That sort of thing. That sort of thing sounds like too much work for Sarah Schilling's summer on the beach. Until Brian's scuba regulator mysteriously fails sixty feet underwater. Her training snaps into laser focus. During Brian's rescue they unearth the 250 year-old secret of Black Bart the pirate and his ghost. The discovery launches them into a hurricane of peril at the hands of modern-day pirates. The Schilling family will not survive unless Brian and Sarah discover the most powerful weapon that is within themselves. A Pirate's Time Served is a Young Adult / Middle Grade thriller of a ghost story. It shows how two teens can dig deeper than they thought possible, discovering what it means to lead, to follow, and to never ever give up especially on family.
