Publisher Summary

The Greasy Lobster, a pirate ship run by the notorious Captain Gallows, is no place for a kid. But when a young orphan arrives on board, the boy has no choice but to take the captain’s orders and get to work gutting fish in the galley. Without family, freedom or even a name to call his own, the boy thinks his fate is sealed until fortune appears in the least likely of places. Can he really turn his luck around in this ship full of thieving pirates, and does one of those pirates hold the key to his mysterious past?
