The Death Defying Pepper Roux by Geraldine McCaughrean

This book is about a fourteen year old boy who was cursed by his aunt.   She had a dream that he would die before he was fully grown.  He wakes up on his fourteenth birthday, goes downstairs to eat breakfast and realizes he must die.  Pepper thought for so many years how he would die.  He also thought that falling was his best option because it would feel like he is flying and it would be painless.

Pepper was really sad because his dad wasn’t there because he is a captain of a ship and he is out to sea.   So Pepper went into town and saw that his father was back.  He talked to one of his men and the man said his father was in the hotel.  When he went to go talk to his father, he got the idea of running away.  He took a ship and a crew and sets sail to run away from death.
