Pirate, Rebel, Privateer, Spy is a tale set in the year 2253 in a less-than-perfect universe. The roles people play can make a mess of things. Sometimes questionable, sometimes convoluted, and sometimes damnable, everyone has an agenda. Everyone wants something. And everyone has his own plan to get what he wants. And things get interesting for Polaris when strategies collide. Before her world collapses in on itself, can Polaris untangle the truth of things? She has an ally in her brother Gilead, but will his help be enough? Dreaming of being something you’re not can get those you love killed. Not everyone can be a ship’s captain. Not everyone understands the military mind. Not everyone appreciates his own limitations. Knowing yourself, knowing your abilities, is the first place to begin. Some will pretend they’re something they’re not, and try to convince everyone else around them to join their delusion. Playing along isn’t always easy. In fact it can be downright deadly.

Smart. Funny. Fearless."It's pretty safe to say that Spy was the most influential magazine of the 1980s. It might have remade New York's cultural landscape; it definitely changed the whole tone of magazine journalism. It was cruel, brilliant, beautifully written and perfectly designed, and feared by all. There's no magazine I know of that's so continually referenced, held up as a benchmark, and whose demise is so lamented" --Dave Eggers. "It's a piece of garbage" --Donald Trump.

A soon-to-be classic by the Newbery Award-winning author of When You Reach Me. After her parents' divorce, Bea's life became different in many ways. But she can always look back at the list she keeps in her green notebook to remember the things that will stay the same.
