Twelve-year-old Jocelyn dreams of becoming every bit as daring as her infamous father, Captain James Hook. Her grandfather, on the other hand, intends to see her starched and pressed into a fine society lady. When she''s sent to Miss Eliza Crumb-Biddlecomb''s Finishing School for Young Ladies, Jocelyn''s hopes of following in her father''s fearsome footsteps are lost in a heap of dance lessons, white gloves, andwaytoo much pink.

So when Jocelyn receives a letter from her father challenging her to avenge his untimely demise at the jaws of the Neverland crocodile, she doesn''t hesitate-here at last is the adventure she has been waiting for. But Jocelyn finds that being a pirate is a bit more difficult than she''d bargained for. As if attempting to defeat the Neverland''s most fearsome beast isn''t enough to deal with, she''s tasked with captaining a crew of woefully untrained pirates, outwitting cannibals wild for English cuisine, and rescuing her best friend from a certain pack of lost children, not to mention that pesky Peter Pan who keeps barging in uninvited.

The crocodile''s clock is always ticking in Heidi Schulz''s debut novel, a story told by an irascible narrator who is both dazzlingly witty and sharp as a sword. Will Jocelyn find the courage to beat the incessant monster before time runs out?
Heidi Schulz is a writer, reader, and giraffe suspicioner.
