520 A bump on the head restores Art's memories of her mother
and the exciting life they led, so the sixteen-year-old
leaves Angels Academy for Young Maidens, seeks out the
pirates who were her family before her mother's death, and
leads them back to adventure on the high seas. Artemesia
is the daughter of a pirate queen, and she's sick of
practicing deportment at the Angels Academy for Young
Maidens. Escaping from the school, she hunts up her
mother's crew and breezily commands them out to sea in a
leaky boat. Unfortunately, Art's memories of her early
life may not be accurate-her seasick crew are actors, and
Art's infamous mother was the darling of the stage in a
pirate drama. But fiery, pistol-proof Art soon shapes her
men into the cleverest pirate crew afloat. And when they
meet the dread ship Enemy and her beautiful, treacherous
captain, Goldie Girl, Art is certain that her memories are
real. The Seven Seas aren't large enough for two pirate
queens: Art will have the battle of her life to win her
mother's title--and the race for the most fabulous
treasure in pirate lore. This gaudy, outrageous tale
sparkles with swordplay, skullduggery, and salty language-
-not to mention over-the-top comedy.
