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.
