Oxen and wain-ropes would not bring me back again to that accursed island; and the worst dreams that ever I have are when I hear the surf booming about its coasts, or start upright in bed, with the sharp voice of Captain Flint still ringing in my ears: ‘Pieces of eight! pieces of eight!'

The exposition was bafflingly long - no treasure hunting plot until about halfway through the story. Once the rising action kicked in though it was a fun, lovely read. A pick overall because I love pirate stories and the last half was great.

If you've ever wondered what would happen if an aimless sociopath were to become obsessed with Stevenson's TREASURE ISLAND, I have the book for you! 😜 This has been on my TBR list for years and it was completely bonkers. I can't think of a single person I would recommend it to, but I thought it was great.

Chrissyreadit I love your review. 13mo

I picked this up because I liked the 2nd in this series so much, the Little Women Remixed Classic written by Bethany Morrow. I wasn‘t disappointed. As befits a Treasure Island remix, this is a swashbuckling adventure story. It‘s set in the region of Canton in 1826 & was inspired by one of the most successful pirates ever, a woman named Zheng Yi Sao. It‘s also a lesbian romance and a story about found family. #LGBTQ #YA #ownvoices

Lindy I forgot to mention that the audiobook narrator is the very capable Emily Woo Zeller. 1y

As a storyteller, I want readers to question history, question why a classic is a classic, who gets to determine what stories are told and what stories are deemed important.
—from the author‘s note at the end of this book, which is the first in the series Remixed Classics from Macmillan.

“I want the world,” I say, my voice growing steadier as I say the words aloud. “I want to see everything. Taste everything. Experience everything.”
