“Cynthia Collins’ The Unicorn Tree is not your typical Young Adult book fare. Very well-written, it combines history, teenage angst, family crisis, and the occult in a wonderful blend that keeps the pages turning. An added plus is you will learn a lot about nautical terms and how old ships work. In short, I highly recommend it!”

— S. R. Mallery, author
