When a college graduate with a history of hapless jobs reads
Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Treasure
Island, she is dumbstruck by the timid design of her life. When had she
ever dreamed a scheme? When had she ever, like Jim Hawkins, broke from her
friends, raced for the beach, stolen a boat, killed a man, and eliminated an
obstacle that stood in the way of her getting a hunk of gold?
Convinced that Stevenson’s book is cosmically intended for
her, she redesigns her life according to its Core Values: boldness, resolution,
independence, and horn-blowing. Accompanied by her mother, her sister, and a
hostile Amazon parrot that refuses to follow the script, our heroine embarks on
a domestic adventure more frightening than anything she’d originally planned.
