Wish List Wednesday: The Pirate Code

The Pirate Code (Hook's Revenge, 2) by Heidi Schulz, September 15, 2015. Published by Disney-Hyperion.
Fresh off a fearsome encounter with the Neverland crocodile, Jocelyn Hook decides the most practical plan is to hunt down her father's famous fortune. After all, she'll need the gold to fund her adventuring in the future. (And luckily, Hook left her the map.)

But the map proves to be a bit harder to crack than Jocelyn had hoped, and she's convinced that the horrible Peter Pan might be the only one with the answers. Of course, he doesn't really feel like helping her, so Jocelyn takes the only reasonable course of action left to her: she kidnaps his mother. Evie, though, is absolutely thrilled to be taken prisoner, so Jocelyn's daring ploy doesn't have quite the effect she'd planned for.

Along with the problem of her all-too-willing captive, Jocelyn must also contend with Captain Krueger, whose general policy is that no deed is too dastardly when it comes to stealing Hook's treasure. And with the ever-shifting Whens of the Neverland working against her as well, Jocelyn, Evie, Roger, and the rest of the Hook's Revenge crew have their work cut out for them.

In this rambunctious showdown between characters new and old, Jocelyn puts her own brand of pirating to the test in a quest to save her future and those she loves.

Why: Heidi Schulz had me from the beginning of Hook's Revenge (expect a review in the upcoming weeks) with her tale if the daughter of Capt. James Hook and Jocelyn's adventures. Needless to say that after reading book one and seeing how it ended, with a promise of more adventures, my need for The Pirate Code is mighty to say the least!!
