A High Wind in Jamaica (Richard Hughes)

High Wind in JamaicaThese poor pirates, man. They should have known better than to pick up a bunch of psychopatic children to ruin them (in a creepy Lord of the Flies way, not Home Alone).

Positive: Negative:
Engrossing sarcastic prose The tiny adventures children have on the ship are not particularly interesting
Children characters manage to feel both genuine and interesting
Gives insight into the lives of British colonizers
Thought-provoking on the psychology of children
