Alexandra Morningside never liked the Wigpowder-Steele Academy … until sixth grade, that is. When Alex learns that Mr. Underwood, her teacher, is a descendant of the Infamous Wigpowder, founder and pirate, she volunteers to help him claim his inheritance. Not as easy as it sounds, especially when Mr. Underwood is kidnapped! And so her journey toward finding (and becoming) a pirate begins. This is a fantasy adventure for Tomboy heroines everywhere.

Reading Tub book review: September 2007

Why a Throwback Thursday for Book Reviews?

Those of us who blog about books are a community. We read lots of books, we write lots of reviews, and we share those reviews with fellow book lovers and those in search of books for children and teens on our blogs, websites, and via social media.

We write so many reviews that, over time, they get buried by other, newer reviews. BUT! that book we read three years ago will always be new to some reader, somewhere. So why not share that review with a new audience?

Everyone is welcome! Here are the participation guidelines:

  • If you reviewed the same book we’re featuring, add your permalink to the original review on the Reading Tub website or in the InLinkz Linkup.
  • Want to (re)share a review you posted in September 2007, then add your permalink in the InLinkz Linkup. [No, it doesn’t have to be a book you loved; but it does have to be a review you take a lot of pride in.]
  • Add any notes about the review in the comments, please.

The spammers have been having a blast with our Throwback Thursday posts … now its your turn to take back blogging from those nuisances. Add your reviews to our InLinkz linkup above or the comments section below.

Too late for this week’s Martha Freeman #TBT linkup?

Our InLinkz linkup is open for one week from publication date. If you didn’t find this post in time, no worries! Add your review on our review page at the Reading Tub.
