"Caribbean Capers" actually is two self-standing stories in one, with shared locales and characters. There is nothing we found that could be considered inappropriate for children, and the writing and plot seem right for readers.
But don't take my word for it. Here's what our daughter had to say about "Caribbean Capers" (though I really, really don't like the term "pre-teen"):
A well written story, that describes that characters with detail, and great description, sucks you into the story, and makes it so that it is like you're actually in the story.
During the first summer, Buzz, (a pre-teen boy that lives in St. John, with his Father) teaches Brian (also a pre-teen boy that came to St. John on a vacation) about boats, as a mystery starts to unravel, and as they go along, the boys learn about courage, trust, and not too judge too quickly about other people especially just about how they look. But who stole all the boat motors?
In the second story, Brian comes back for another exciting trip to the Virgin Islands, but when a mysterious boy named Eric who comes from a country called Ergrea, is hiding on the Crystal Blue yacht, it looks like another mystery that needs solving. Eric was almost kidnapped by his body guard, he escaped, but will he be able to escape again?
Think Scooby Doo mysteries, but in a good way. The book reads well, and would be appropriate for a few hour plane ride from the U.S.' East coast to a vacation in the Caribbean. <P...
