Racking my brain

I read part of a book a couple of years ago, and I've been trying for months to track it down. It is a novel - part of a series, I think - about a girl who has adventures on the high seas. I thought it might have been The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, but having read a snippet, I'm certain it isn't.

What do I remember? The girl had an unusual name, a connection to the Cape (or near the Cape) and of course an adventure on the ocean(s). Oh, and that the books are well-written. Last time this happened, it took me years (and finally, very good luck) to track down a book. I hope this time isn't as difficult.

Ah, thank you very much, anon. Right you are, on the first try, for certain.

I think I like her better than Potter, from what I read...

"better than potter"... bite your tongue, mister :)

you may want to verify this... but i believe that this is the correct order of books in the "Wolves Chronicle".

1. wolves of willoughby chase
2. black hears in battersea
3. nightbirds on nantucket
4. the whispering mountain
5. the cuckoo tree
6. midnight is a place
7. the stolen lake
8. dido and pa
9. is
10. could shoulder road
11. dangerous games
12. midwinter nightingale
13. the witch of clatteringshaws

happy reading...
