Now that the King of England has called her a pirate and put a price on her head, Jacky Faber has no choice but to stay out of sight. Hoping for a safe hiding place, she returns to the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston, but the calm doesn’t last long. On a class field trip to Boston Harbor, the girls are abducted and forced into the hold of the Bloodhound, a ship bound for the slave markets on the Barbary Coast where they will be put up on the auction block and sold into Arab harems. Jacky wouldn’t dream of going down without a fight, but the delicate Lawson Peabody girls are in over their heads. Although Jacky will use anything in her arsenal to help her well-heeled classmates, she isn’t so certain they will find the strength and courage needed to survive. But if she can convince them to trade petticoats and propriety for her daring escape plan, the girls just might become their own rescuers. Download and start listening now!

    " The book "In the Belly of the Bloodhound: Being an Account of a Particularly Peculiar Adventure in the Life of Jacky Faber," book number 4 in the Bloody Jack series by L. A. Meyer is a fantastic story about a young girl who had once posed as a male sailor on a British warship in the Early 1800's. The series follows her throughout her misadventures and shows the hardships she goes through from being orphaned to becoming a sailor and then on to how she had changed from small helpless "boy" to a young conniving woman, wanted for piracy by the King of England. This installment in the series focuses on Jacky's travels back to Boston after she escapes the Battle of Trafalgar, and then shows the trials of her and her classmates from the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls as they get kidnapped and taken aboard a slaver to be sold in the slave pens of Morocco by a slave master by the name of Sin Kay. Jacky and the other girls all outsmart the sailors of the slaver and manage to escape and find their way home before they are able to be sold. I really enjoy this book because it shows more personalities of the other students and shows how cruel slave ships actually were, even though this book is fiction the conditions of the ship described were fact as to how they were for the slaves being brought to America from Africa. The end was such a twist and am hoping for her survival, I do like how it explains everything that Jacky does to show how cunning and resourceful is to help all the girls escape safely. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody, mostly girls as Jacky does go on about her love life for sometime pining for her long lost love, Jaimy, who she searches for throughout this series. It is a wonderful book, as is the rest of the series. "
