Review: Stowaway

User Review  - Goodreads

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it inspired me to read on and learn more about Captain James Cook's three voyages. The narrator's voice was enjoyable and felt authentic for his age and time. I think it would be a good book recommendation for reluctant readers. Read full review
