Pirates! The True and Remarkable Adventures of Minerva Sharpe and Nancy Kington, Female Pirates by Celia Rees, 2003.
Nancy Kington, a wealthy merchant's daughter living in Bristol, England in the early 1700's, is sometimes lonely but enjoys the privileges her father's business brings. Minerva Sharpe is a penniless slave's daughter living and working on the Kington's Jamaican plantation. These two young women, united through a set of extraordinary circumstances including a brutal murder, an arranged marriage, and set of ruby earrings, find themselves sailing the high seas in search of love, adventure and freedom—as pirates!I finished reading Pirates yesterday on the way to the Scott Westerfeld signing (which was a ton of fun) and was this one amazing book. I totally recommend it if you haven't read it yet.
Risa's getting really confused about her feelings for Ôtani--she doesn't know if she wants to help him get back together with his ex-girlfriend or keep him all to herself!
A new student starts out as Risa's rival for love, but ends up proving how important it is to be honest with yourself!
Risa has finally realized that she has feelings for Ôtani, and can't wait to confess her love. But dense Ôtani won't take her hints! With the help of all their friends and a romantic beach vacation, can Risa get her affections past his thick head?I picked up Love*Com one the other week on a whim and loved it so much that I immediately put VOLs 2-4 (the only other VOLs they have, so sad) on request. The thing I love about this series is that it's soo funny. It's another series that I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys reading mangas or is looking for a light and quick read.
