'Let me begin by saying that it started with a dream. My dream. I wanted to sail around the world. Solo.
Edie Sparks has grand plans. She' s building a boat to sail solo around the world, but she needs cash, and fast. So when her uncle offers her good money to work on his island pearl farm for six weeks she jumps at the chance. All she has to do is babysit her little cousi - how hard could it be?
But soon Edie is wrangling a monster-brat, arguing with her uncle and being wooed by two handsome boys. The work is hard and thankless and an isolated island off the coast of Far North Queensland turns out to be not as idyllic as it sounds.
One island, one girl, two boys (and a brat to babysit) - Thirteen Pearls is perfect for girls with a sense of adventure and romance.' (Publisher's blurb)
