Treasure Island

Treasure Island starts out at the admiral ben bow inn. A grizzled old seaman comes stomping through the front door, and with that his reign of terror begins. It turns out he is running from a one-legged pirate who is after treasure.

Artemis Fowl

I loved reading this book because it has action that keeps your interest throughout the whole book. It's about a 12 year old, millionaire, genius, and suprisingly a criminal mastermind. But even he doesn't know what he's taken on when he kinaps Captain Holly short of the Lower Elements Police (LEP) She's a fairy, who is all sweet and kind like in fairy tales. She is armed and dangerous. It has many unexpected twists that keep your interest and I would highly recommend it.
