High school freshman, Ricky Bradshaw, can only dream of playing basketball and hanging with the cool girls. After he appears to drown while rescuing a dog, Ricky has an outer body experience that lands him in the 1700’s aboard a Caribbean pirate ship. Now Ricky must match wits with evil brigands to stay one step away from sharks, snakes, cannibals, planks, swords, musket balls and above all, the evil Captain LaFoote. But what is Ricky’s mysterious mission? And how will he return to his own life and times?

Eddie Jones produces a masterful and imaginative speculative fantasy that weaves together personal and spiritual growth with a crazy mission to rescue a damsel in distress—who looks like the girl Ricky’s been crushing on at school. The publisher self-rates this novel as PG-13, and rightly so, for the violence is high, with witchcraft and divination crowding the scenes. Readers must guess who is good and who isn’t, and whether this is all a coma induced dream, or an alternate reality . . . This is one of those books that makes brilliant sense only after readers finish the sequel.
