Bad pirate by Kari-Lynn Winters( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 567 libraries worldwide
"Barnacle Garrick is bold and saucy and selfish. And for a pirate captain, that's good, very good. And his crew are all scurvy sea dogs--selfish down to the last fleabitten scuttle-butt. And that's good too. But Augusta Garrick is shy, polite, and selfless. For a pirate, that's bad, very bad. Despite her father's horrible example, the sea pup can't stop helping out. It just might take one terrible storm, a ripped sail, a missing peg leg and a panicked crew before Augusta can prove that being selfless is a bold and saucy move after all. And that's good, very good indeed" --
