This novelette is a thing of beauty.
It tells a more compelling tale in 30 pages than many a full-length novel.
A girl, disguised as a boy, who ran away to sea.
This book is not shy with same-gender relationships, something I've not come across often in stories of sea voyages (which I admittedly have not read many of).(show spoiler)
It does not shy away either, from the risks that the main character is taking as a female masquarading as male on board a ship at sea.
And then of course, there is a storm and a shipwreak :D
In a nutshell, this was startlingly lovely, and I highly recommend it.It can be found for free reading here: http://www.tor.com/stories/2013/07/homecoming
