Fish is sent away from the family farm to work for an uncle in the city, but while running an errand, he becomes mixed up with a shipful of unpapered privateers (translation: pirates). Loved this adventure from beginning to end, especially the puzzling clues our treasure-hunters struggled to solve. Ghost is a boy from a rough neighborhood who mostly tries to stay out of trouble. But when he sees a track team strutting their stuff in the park, he can’t resist showing them that they’re not so fast. He knows how to run (and for good reason), and in proving he can, he earns himself a place on the team. And I’ve been working my way through the Amulet series of graphic novels. Volume 2 is The Cloud Searchers.
