It's tough to be thirteen, especially when somebody's trying to kill you. Not that Egg's life was ever easy, growing up on sweaty, pirate-infested Deadweather Island with no company except an incompetent tutor and a pair of unusually violent siblings who hate his guts. But when Egg's father hustles their family off on a mysterious errand to fabulously wealthy Sunrise Island, then disappears with the siblings in a freak accident, Egg finds himself a long-term guest at the mansion of the glamorous Pembroke family and their beautiful, sharp-tongued daughter Millicent. Finally, life seems perfect. Until someone tries to throw him off a cliff.
Deadweather and Sunrise was a great book! I loved it so much. It was so adventurous. The characters came forth from the page and took you with them on pirate Burn Healy's ship to Deadweather and Sunrise Islands. The book made me laugh so hard sometimes, and sometimes I just wanted to go and sit next to Egg, the main character, and give him a pat on the shoulder and say, "things will work out." But the end was disappointing; it seemed to be a slapdash ending, like the author didn't know how to finish it.
