Free Fiction Monday: Once on the Blue Moon

Free Fiction Monday: Once on the Blue Moon

As Collette’s parents take her on an outdated “luxury” starliner called the Blue Moon to yet another boarding school, she sees this as just one more crappy turn of events.

But when the guys with guns show up, she knows boarding school pales in comparison to whatever these guys plan to do to her—and to her parents.

So, when the bad guys lock her in her suite, she determines to use every ounce of mischief she can to thwart their mission.

But what can an eleven-year-old do against pirates? Perhaps more than anyone might expect.
