Coop DeVille, a teenage pirate captain, spots a beautiful girl on the shore in southern Florida. The girl happens to be rebellious teenager Jenny Snow, who is constantly changing her hair color.

The two quickly find themselves on a search for an ancient treasure that's been lost for hundreds of years. With the help of some friends, DeVille and Snow are off to find the treasure, while hitting a few bumps in the road along the way.

Mr. Jennings creates witty characters who create an overall comical and adventurous plot. The unique writing style takes readers into the present day where pirates still happen to be in existence. Through his ability to bring his characters alive, Jennings leaves readers hoping to spot a wooden pirate ship off on the horizon. This book is a fun, quick read for people of all ages. ( )

From the first page or two I found this book to be one I didn't want to read because of its narration style. Though the book is written for young adults, the style feels as if it better fits the reading level of five year olds. I couldn't make myself push past the first couple of chapters. It is narrated from the present tense and is simplistic in vocabulary and content. ( )

Turtle Rock is where sixteen-year-old Jenny Snow goes to sit and listen to her iPod and think about the tedium that is her life. Although she is by nature a steady, responsible sort of person, Jenny longs for adventure, even danger. Little does she know, danger and adventure lie right under her nose—quite literally. Having spotted her sunning on Turtle Rock, a young seventh-generation pirate named Coop DeVille has swum all the way from his ship to make her acquaintance. Of course, she is too consumed by her own boredom to notice him clinging to the rock below, but a pirate is not easily deterred, which is only one of the many things Jenny soon discovers. Like the ancient map Coop DeVille keeps taped to his stomach, the adventure of Jenny’s life finally begins to unfold—and as it does, even the rock she sits on nearly becomes her undoing in this rollicking tale of piracy, peril, lost treasure, and newfound love—as only Richard Jennings could imagine it.

Sixteen-year-old Jenny Snow of South Florida finds the adventurous life she craves when she joins forces with eighteen-year-old Coop DeVille, a seventh-generation pirate, to seek the lost turtle totem of the Ugiri-Tom.
