A High Wind In Jamaica

A book about children, but not a children's book. Adults mainly forget what it feels like to be a child- perhaps because most of it is so embarrassing-  but Hughes remembered- and remembered unsparingly. Also it's beautifully written- the earthquake and the hurricane are fabulous- and there are pirates in it. 

I read it in half a day. I don't often do that.
