A pirate at heart, unlikely heroine Jacky Faber returns to the sea in a truly swashbuckling tale filled with good humor, wit, and courage. After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston—under dire circumstances, of course—Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don’t go as planned and soon she is off on a wild misadventure at sea. She thwarts the lecherous advances of a crazy captain, rallies the sailors to her side, and ultimately gains command of a ship in His Majesty’s Royal Navy. But Jacky’s adventures don’t end there … eventually she is being called a pirate, and there’s a price on her head! Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Jacky is a wonderful character, full of high spirits, brains, and heart. This novel and its two prequels are highly recommended for fans of historical fiction and pirates.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Readers will root for resilient Jacky and her memorable friends as she cannily makes the best of even the least-promising situations. A swashbuckling saga with a decidedly unconventional heroine.”

    Booklist

  • “A perfect homage to Patrick O'Brian's wondrous nautical tales…carefully fitted for a spirited girl.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 2/29/2008

    " This is my favorite by far in the series. There is tons of dramatic irony and tons of playful romance, which I love. Also this is the one where the characters are mostly at sea and all of the adventure deals with pirateing. It is a great read. "
