Bloody Jack: Being an Account of the Curious Adventures of Mary “Jacky” Faber, Ship’s Boy – L.A. Meyer

Life as a ship’s boy aboard the HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of eighteenth-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas.

There’s only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret. This could be the adventure of her life–if only she doesn’t get caught. . . .

I kept putting off reading this one and I’m not sure why.  It was excellent! I love books with girls doing traditionally “boy” things and “Jacky” sure does her share of wild and adventurous things.  There’s pirate fights, climbing in the rigging, surviving alone on an island, etc!  Try this if you love adventure and gutsy girls!!  – Jessica, Teen Librarian
