"Secrets of the Realm" by Bev Stout is an exciting historical adventure novel set on an 18th century ship, called Realm. 16 year old Annie runs away from an abusive aunt and after begging for a while pretends to be a boy to hire on the ship under the name of Andres. The ship is full of colourful and interesting characters, the life on the ship has been immaculately researched and described with excellent detail about all day routines and sailing at the time. The story is a great adventure with pirates and action as well. Very enjoyable.
