We loved the audio version

We absolutely loved listening to this book! The narrator was fantastic! The only thing I didn't love was that her father was one of the bad guys. It didn't ruin the storyline or the other characters but I do feel that parents would want to know this in advance. Also the heroine runs away from boarding school to be a pirate and is obviously young teens running around with just her governess to watch over her. Again we loved the narrator completely but the story line definitely has some things to be aware of.
