Dragon's Teeth - Ian Napier
Sixteen-year-old Peter had the best summer ever and it was mainly due to meeting up with Jasmin and Kimberley - his new girlfriends....well kind of.
Now they want him to come up to Darwin for a holiday with them when they get back from a short sailing jaunt in waters north of Australia.
But when he arrives, it is to a nightmare situation - the yacht has been attacked by pirates and the girls have been taken to the pirates' island base to be sold later as slaves.
However, the pirates weren't to know that Jasmin's uncle was a colonel in the SAS, and that's just the sort of person you don't want annoy. With his skills and Peter's determination, life is about to get pretty uncomfortable for the pirates!
