Take the adventure...if you dare!  Eddie Jones' goal in writing The Curse of Captain LaFoote is to spur the imaginations of young readers—boys especially. With colorful characters, it is the perfect book for every tween or young adult who enjoys adventure, humor and romance. The story offers a "clean" read and is endorsed by Good Reads, teachers, homeschoolers and moms.

Book Summary
RICKY BRADSHAW has never sailed the Caribbean Sea, searched for buried treasure or battled pirates on the deck of a Spanish Galleon. He’s never fallen through the floor of Davy Jones’ locker or watched an old fisherman morph into a porpoise. All Ricky knows is his lonely life with his widowed mom in a tiny apartment overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. But all that changes on a snowy Christmas Eve when Ricky’s apartment building burns down and he suffers a seizure, falling into the chilly waters. Suddenly Ricky finds himself thrust into a world where there is surprising beauty on every island, danger around every corner and great honor and glory ahead of him—if only Ricky can summon the courage to survive the curse of Captain LaFoote.
