This fourth collection features Val, the Windward’s loyal, protective, and peace-loving Boatswain. A funny bit of monkey business sets Val into crafting a new Pirate Code. It's time to let go of the "old ways" and build a new Code based on kindness, service, and authenticity.
In the process, the pirate girls land at the crime-laden town of Port Harmony, prompting them to disguise themselves while making particular dramatic use of Val’s wheelchair. They encounter all sorts of creatures and characters, including a tricky band of robbers, "Monk McLuhen and the Quiet Boys." The girls use their new Code to cleverly but kindly get their stolen things back.
