    Life as a ship's boy aboard 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. . ... Show more

Really like this book, and this series

by Seriesly on Aug 5, 2009

This book isn't amazing, but this series is really good. The first book can be slightly boring at times. When you get past that you really get into her adventure. If you don't love this book, you are sure to love one of the others. My favorite so far is the third one. If you can hold out until then, you are in for a treat. It only gets better.

A Disappointment

by PennInk on Apr 3, 2007

Though the book had a good storyline, Jacky's confusing style of naration takes a long time to get used to (I had to read chapter 1 twice before I understood what she was even talking about). There was far more sexual content then I expected, including a pedefile which brought about several extremely disturbing and pretty graphic scenes. The stuff with the French pirate felt rather jumbled into the storyline, and the whole episode of Jacky flying away on the kite was ridiculous. On the up side, the historical content and details of life at sea seemed pretty accurate (this is a personal point of interest) and some of the dialogue was entertaining. But, in the end, I wish I hadn't wasted my money.
