Publisher's Summary

They are outcasts. Hal, Stig, and the others - they are the boys the others want no part of. Skandians, as any reader of Ranger's Apprentice could tell you, are known for their size and strength. Not these boys. Yet that doesn't mean they don't have skills. And courage - which they will need every ounce of to do battle at sea against the other bands, the Wolves and the Sharks, in the ultimate race. The icy waters make for a treacherous playing field - especially when not everyone thinks of it as playing.
John Flanagan, author of the international phenomenon Ranger's Apprentice, creates a new cast of characters to populate his world of Skandians and Araluens, a world millions of young readers and listeners around the world have come to know and admire. Full of seafaring adventures and epic battles, Book 1 of The Brotherband Chronicles is sure to thrill fans of Ranger's Apprentice while enticing a whole new generation just now discovering the books.

A great tale

As usual Flanagan has created a story that entertains and teaches at the same time. Bullys who wound through words and deeds, personal and interpersonal challenges (alcoholism, facing disabilities, etc) all addressed through the bonds of friendship and teamwork. Great for kids and something for adults too.
