Waiting on Wednesday (116)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
 that showcases upcoming releases 
that people are very much anticipating.

Last year, I read and adored the first book in this excellent Middle Grade series. It's a Peter Pan retelling, yet not, because it's about a whole new character and even more adventures. But don't worry--there's still Neverland and a bunch of your favorite characters who never grow up. I, unfortunately, have to grow up. And get this book in my hookless hands as soon as possible (or else ye will walk the plank)!

Title: The Pirate Code 
Author: Heidi Schulz, Illustrated by John Hendrix
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Publishing Date: September 15, 2015
Pages: 352

Fresh off her victory over 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.
 


Is your pick this week a swashbuckling sequel?

  5. Great pick! I read Hook's Revenge about a month ago and loved it! It was so original, funny, and clever- I loved how she mixed Jocelyn's story with what we already knew (or didn't!) about Neverland. I can't wait for The Pirate Code! The cover is bananas :)
