Savannah Dare has always wanted to be a pirate. She grew up on legends of Blackbeard from her grandfather ― her best friend and fellow treasure hunter. But now he’s gone. Savannah and her sisters, Frances and Jolene are left to find Blackbeard’s lost loot on their own. It was their grandfather’s dream, and they can’t let him down.
No one else in their small town on Ocracoke Island believes Blackbeard’s treasure is truly still out there... no one except their grandfather’s mysterious old business partner, who’s determined to find it himself. And when their family home is endangered, the Dare sisters realize finding Blackbeard’s treasure is their only hope! The Goonies meets Book Scavenger in this action-packed middle grade novel.
"Savannah 'Savvy' Mae Dare, 11, is the middle child; athletic, popular Frankie is 13; and 'beauty queen' Jolene is six. Savvy may be the ringleader of their adventures and the sibling most like their storytelling paternal grandfather, but all of the girls have been raised on his passion for treasure hunting and perseverance.... To save their beloved house, the Queen Mary, and thwart the man trying to claim their inheritance, the sisters must think like pirates and try to discern who among their family and friends is trustworthy." — Publishers Weekly
