The Chronicles of Egg: Deadweather and Sunrise

By: Geoff Rodkey

Egbert has grown up on the dirty, sweltering, pirating island of Deadweather.  His father, a
former pirate who now runs a farm with workers who were also former pirates, and a sister and brother who constantly pick on him.  One day, Egbert's father surprises the family with a boat trip to the nearby island of Sunrise - Egbert is thrilled!  Sunrise is beautiful and full of rich people and wonderful places.  While there, they meet the Pembroke family, including Millicent who catches Egbert's eye.  But, this meeting leads to the loss of Egbert's family and people trying to kill Egbert!

Mrs. Senechal says:
This was a fun adventurous story with great twists on the typical pirate tale - the action will certainly keep you turning the pages.  I enjoyed the characters and the relationships that grew throughout the story.  The author also created some great fictional settings with the two islands of Deadweather and Sunrise.  I definitely will be reading the other books in the series!
