The four Walker children never meant to go to sea. They had promised their mother to stay safely in the harbour, and to be home on Friday in time for tea.
But there they are in someone else’s boat, drifting out to sea in a thick fog. When the fog lifts, they can turn round and sail back to the harbour. But then comes the wind and the storm, driving them out even further across the cold North Sea . . .

Mark Twain - The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (Penguin Readers)
From the famous episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the trial of Injun Joe, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his own youth. A somber undercurrent flows through the high humor and unabashed nostalgia of the novel, however, for beneath the innocence of childhood lie the inequities of adult reality - base emotions and superstitions, murder and revenge, starvation and slavery.

C. S. Forester - Mr Midshipman Hornblower (Oxford Bookworms)
'Hornblower fired. There was a small cloud of smoke, but no bang. This is death, he thought. My pistol was the unloaded one.' But Horatio Hornblower does not die. He survives the duel with Simpson, learns to overcome his seasickness, and goes on to risk his life many times over. It is 1793, Britain is at war with France, and life on a sailing ship of war is hard and dangerous. But the hardest battles are fought by Hornblower within himself.
Mark Twain - The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Long cherished by readers of all ages, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is both a hilarious account of an incorrigible truant and a powerful parable of innocence in conflict with the fallen adult world. The mighty Mississippi River of the antebellum South gives the novel both its colorful backdrop and its narrative shape, as the runaways Huck and Jim—a young rebel against civilization allied with an escaped slave—drift down its length on a flimsy raft. Their journey, at times rollickingly funny but always deadly serious in its potential consequences, takes them ever deeper into the slave-holding South, and our appreciation of their shared humanity grows as we watch them travel physically farther from yet morally closer to the freedom they both passionately seek.
Noel Streatfeild - White Boots
Harriet Johnson has been sick, and her doctor recommends taking up ice skating to build up strength in her legs. At the ice rink, Harriet meets Lalla Ward. Harriet has three brothers - Alec, Toby and Edward - and they live with their parent over the shop owned by Mr Johnson. The only reason they can afford for Harriet to skate is that the doctor has arranged for her to get free entry to the rink, and Alec pays for hire of skating boots by doing a paper run. Lalla lives with her wealthy Aunt Claudia and Uncle David, as her parents are dead - they drowned when her father, a champion skater, took her mother skating on thin ice. Aunt Claudia is determined that Lalla will become a champion like her father. She is looked after by Nana, has lessons with a governess, Miss Goldthorpe ("Goldie"), and as well as daily skating lessons, she learns ballet and fencing. Harriet and Lalla soon become best friends, as Lalla teaches Harriet to skate. However, Lalla's training does not leave her much free time to see Harriet away from the rink. However, this changes when Goldie and Uncle David decide it would be good for her if Harriet was able to share her lessons. Before long, Harriet is not only doing schoolwork with Lalla - she is also joining in ballet and fencing ... and she, too, is learning to skate well.
