Windward Ho! Fore & Aft (Book One)
When seven young girls win a day-long journey aboard the great pirate ship "The Windward" — a real-life model of a fictional ship — they never suspect the true Halloween adventure that awaits them on October 31. Nine-year-old Periwinkle “Wink” Mackenzie finds herself in need of all the information she has learned from multiple readings of her favorite book series, The Windward Chronicles. Tasked unexpectedly with leadership as the ship’s captain, Wink overcomes her shyness and learns to draw out the strengths of each girl in order to achieve their common goal: to return home safely.
