A classic tale of pirate adventure, featuring runaways, a treasure map, pirate legends, and beach showdowns. When a new friend tells Xiang there’s a secret map in her family heirloom, she leaves home to find the hidden treasure and prove to her mother that she has the wits and courage to run the family business.

The first half of the book is slow introduction, but once the action picks up it doesn’t stop. The big reveals weren’t a surprise, but the moments of discovering the world and found family made this an overall heartwarming adventure.

Based on the general synopsis of Treasure Island, I’d say this book is as much a retelling as any other story featuring a treasure map and a race to find hidden treasure. Most details are completely their own, from the setting to Xiang’s backstory to her bonds with the pirate crew.
