SummaryAdd a Summary
Alex hates her school. The lessons are boring and oppresive, as are most of the students. The arrival of a new teacher lightens her mood. Mr. Underwood makes learning fun, even befriending Alex's beloved uncle. Life at school becomes more enjoyable and more fun!
This comes to a crashing halt when Mr. Underwood is kidnapped by pirates who think he knows where a treasure is hidden. Alex sets out to rescue her teacher, leading to a series of encounters with strange and nefarious people.
The novel constantly breaks the fourth wall, with the author talking to her audience to comment on the action, allowing for lots of humor. Alex is an able heroine who can look afterherself and the villains are larger than life. Clever pacing and a well written book.
