To escape a life of petticoats and politeness, Hilary and her gargoyle friend set out on an adventure that may or may not involve a map without an X, a magical treasure that doesn't exist, a rogue governess, a crew of misfit scallywags, and the most treacherous - and unexpected - villain on the High Seas.
