Piratica: Being a Daring Tale of a Singular Girl's Adventure upon the High Seas

Author: Tanith Lee

First line: One day when she was sixteen, Art remembered her mother.

Why you should read this book: After a nasty fall down the stairs at the Angels Academy for Young Maidens, Miss Artemesia Fitz-Willoughby Weatherhouse recovers repressed memories of her mother, Piratica, and escapes through the chimney to seek her fortune as Art Blastside, pistol proof Pirate Queen.

Why you shouldn't read this book: If you don't like piracy or the theater, you're not going to find much here.
