              1750, when times were tough and teeth were rotten... As part of an ancient family tradition - as a birthday gift from his rich Grandnan, Atticus Van Tasticus chooses a pirate ship, a choice that will change the course of history - well, OK - his story, at least. Instead of going ...to school or down a coal mine, Atticus pulls together a rag-tag bunch misfits - OOPS - a tough, brilliant crew, and sets out to wreak havoc - AHEM - live a piratin' life. With almost nothing, Atticus has a heart for adventure and beauty and danger. Where any minute might be your last, and your next minute could be your best. (If only they could get off the dock...)

              Hendrix's father has a vision - to see Hendrix run for Australia at the Olympics. Hendrix's days are completely mapped out - what he eats, when he trains, when he sleeps - even the air he breathes. A girl was never meant to part of that vision, especially in the lead-up to the Na...tionals. But when Hendrix literally bowls Emily over on a training run, he just can't get her out of his head, and chinks begin to appear in his training regime as he falls for her. But Emily has a deadly secret that she's reluctant to share even with Hendrix. As their bond grows and Hendrix strays further from his father's strict schedule, the tension builds to a heart-wrenching climax.
