SEA CUTTER: BOOK 1 IN THE CHRONICLES OF NATHANIEL CHILDE by:Timothy Davis

 When Nat’s mother goes to Maine and his father presumed dead he is left all alone. Nat’s friend Wayland comes over one afternoon and has a huge sea chest. Nat immediately recognises it as his father’s. They open it up and it has a mysterious message. Nat opens a case meant for his mother and finds a huge pearl. He thinks that it is a clue that his father is  on an island that has never been found, Perlas Grandes. Wayland suggests that they search for Perlas Grandes on his boat, the Sea Cutter. Nat gets excited, but Wayland ruins it by saying that he has to get permission from his mother to go. Nat soon finds a way around it, but what will he do about the deadly stowaway onboard the Sea Cutter? This was my first e-reader book! There was a little violence(someone gets stabbed), but I think a 9-year-old could handle it. This book reminded me of Treasure Island a little bit. I liked how in one part(I’m not telling you which) a character reappears from the beginning.  It had a ton of twists and turns with some cool nautical stuff. Sea Cutter get 4 out of 5 shields.
