* MusclesAreMeaningless: Averted? Subverted? Miya is very short and petite, described as having a narrow waist (her father's sword belt only just barely fits her on the tightest buckle) and narrow shoulders. This doesn't stop her from being strong enough to drive a sword through a person's shoulder. However, larger characters are portrayed as being stronger than her -- Badger Pete's blows are described as being so strong that parrying them actually hurts.

''Adventure Dawns'' (2010) is the first in the '''''Miya Black, Pirate Princess''''' series by BJKWhite. It deals with the misadventures of one Miya Black, self-proclaimed pirate and princess of somewhat dubious royal lineage.

Miya lives on Clover Island with her parents, ex-princess Lilith Black nee Brightburn and ex-pirate Tomas Black. The story goes that around fifteen years ago Tomas met Lilith and stole her away from her parents, and together they eventually decided to create their own kingdom on a little island in the Rainbow Archipelago. Miya was born shortly afterwards, and grew up as the princess of the island, splitting her time between learning about princess-y things like royal laws and pirate-y things like sailing, fighting, swimming etc.

Everything in her life seems to be going pretty well, until her fourteenth birthday. That's when the news that a pirate by the name of Badger Pete has attacked the northern islands and is heading their way. Miya sets out to find a way to stop him, deciding to enlist the help of her paternal grandparents--who happen to be legendary pirates.

* ActionGirl: Miya
* AncestralWeapon
* BadassBookworm: Sola, kind of.
* BadassFamily: The Blacks.
* BarehandedBladeBlock
* BattleInTheRain
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Not quite. Grace is described as being much prettier than Miya, but she's certainly not the good one.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted. Miya gets pretty beat up in some of her fights, and certainly shows the effects of her wounds. By the end of the book she's a complete mess. To be fair she's not really described as 'beautiful' to begin with, but still.
* BladeLock
* BrotherSisterTeam: Miya and Sola.
* {{Catchphrase}}: For Miya "I do NOT give up" and "Come at me, if you have the heart" or variations thereof.
* ChekhovsGun: Quite a few.

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* GentleGiant: Sola
* [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan Get a Hold of Yourself, Girl!]]: A somewhat rare male-on-female example.

Miya is very short and petite, described as having a narrow waist (her father's sword belt only just barely fits her on the tightest buckle) and narrow shoulders. This doesn't stop her from being strong enough to drive a sword through a person's shoulder.
