Book Review

Patch is a wonderful, joyful and clever character

The Accidental Stowaway is a fun adventure book about a girl who accidentally boarded a ship before it set sail and ended up on a massive adventure involving the ship, its crew, its passengers and its stowaways.

The book focuses on a young, orphan girl called Patch who is constantly moving homes and leaving people and things behind. Patch is a wonderful, joyful and clever character who constantly manages to come up with solutions in the nick of time adding stunning elements of suspense to the story.

Overall I really enjoyed the storyline and I would recommend the book to all ages. It was a really enjoyable read and I would give it 5 out of 5 stars.
