Book Review: Capt. Hook

Title: Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth
Author: J.V. Hart (with Brett Helquist, Illustrator)
Genre: Action/Adventure (Middle Grade)
Rating: A+

140-Character Summary: The fresh story of how the well-known Captain Hook came to acquire his notoriety during his days at Eton.

First 140 Characters of the Book: "It was his eyes. The color of blue forget-me-nots, piercing, like two novas in a sky of dying stars. Profoundly melancholy, yes. Except when..." (p. 1).

140-Character Review: A great story of how a wonderful villain become villainous. Hook's oppressors were sufficiently evil and he, sufficiently good. (Surprised?)
