"When you're a privateer, running a starship is a family business. For Tycho Hashoone, his twin sister, Yana, and their older brother, Carlo, the family business is far from easy. For starters, they have to make a living however they can, all while dodging pirates and Earth's dreaded warships. Then they have to please the Jovian Union, an alliance of moons that provides the Hashoones their letter of marque against Earth's merchant fleet. But hardest of all, the siblings have to impress their mother, Captain Diocletia Hashoone, who keeps a log of how they perform on every test, simulation, and mission aboard their family starship, the Shadow Comet. Because while the three siblings might be crewers together, only one of them will be chosen as the Comet's next captain. Talk about sibling rivalry! Part high-seas adventure, part space-age epic, the Jupiter Pirates is an unforgettable saga about a solar system on the brink of war and one family caught in the middle of it"--Jacket flap.

Space ship and outer space descriptions are evocative yet easy to picture. Our 7 year old loves it, but the book also would be great for an older reader. This is a very well written and engaging story. The 12 year old Tycho thinks and speaks like a 12 year old without resort to tedious playground slang. Great book on many levels.
