Here’s my review for Deadweather And Sunrise. Enjoy! Egbert is 13 years old, and lives on Deadweather Island, where the weather is always bad on his family’s ugly fruit plantation. When his father puts together a crew on short notice, they are off to Sunrise, where the weather is perfect. Then they meet a man named Roger Pembroke, who invites them over to have dinner. Egbert, who’s new nickname is Egg, falls in love with Pembroke’s daughter; Millicent, and after Pembroke puts Egg’s family on a hot-air balloon, they never return. Egg lives with the Pembrokes for three weeks, then on a journey up the side of the mountain with a man named Birch; Egg loses Pembroke’s trust. In a thrilling tale of pirates, treasure, friendship and hiding, Geoff Rodkey delights readers with boatloads of action and a lot of not knowing who to trust. Will Pembroke find the treasure that he long has looked for, or will Egg find it first?
What I thought about it:
Deadweather And Sunrise was a fantastical read. The cover captured my attention and lured me in, for which I am very glad. Geoff Rodkey writes with such description, and sells you from the first few chapters. His imagination is wild and his touch of love is captivating. There are lots of emotions in this story: love, fear, hate, and many others. I could not put it down. The action in this book was enthralling, and made you wonder what would happen next. Deadweather And Sunrise is a must read for fan of pirates, action and suspense.
