  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Holly Booms Walsh | 2/17/2014

    " Entertaining if a bit far-fetched, this is a rip-roaring young adult historical (1800's) adventure story of a British street urchin that disguises herself as a boy and gets a job aboard a pirate-hunting Royal Navy ship as a ship's boy. It's got some references to plague death, sex, and violent sea battles that make it inappropriate for younger children. It's very well read in audiobook format on Audible, and I may get the next couple of books in the series for light reading. "

    " This was surprisingly quite good and fun to read, considering that it is written in really 'bad' English and a Liang-Zhu type romance actually takes place on a ship. "
