The 12 and UP is highly recomended. This is not a story for the faint of heart. Although not as grizzly as an adult novel would be, it is still graphic in its descriptions of death and "salty seamens ways".

I was NOT very fond of this book in the least! It started great, I liked it but then at about the middle of the book it got all weird and nasty. Not a kids or YA read I would recommend to parents for their children!

Jacky Faber is used to fighting for survival as an orphan on the streets of London. When the HMS Dolphin is hiring ship boys for an exciting new voyage, Jack finally has a chance to escape life on the streets, to fight pirates, and pursue riches and glory on a real English warship. There’s only one problem… Jacky is a girl!

The first in the popular series by L.A. Meyer, comes Bloody Jack, a fast-paced story of swash-buckling adventure and deception on the high seas. Although sometimes slipping into stereotypes of the minor characters, Jacky is a strong clever protagonist - she will not disappoint. At times funny, dangerous, and romantic, this book will engage readers until the very end.

this quick moving book is an adventure on the high seas. Young Jack looks after herself by getting work on a ship and then earning herself the reputation of Bloody Jack during a battle with pirates. There is a bit of a romantic undertone as Jack hits puberty and her feelings for her fellow cabin boys come to the surface. While maintaining her disguise as a boy, she has to deal with her feelings as a girl. The book is high interest and a good quick read.

A street urchin disguises herself as a ships boy and recasts her life as Jacky Faber. Rip-roaring adventure on the high seas is only the beginning of this ongoing series about a super strong girl who any one would want to be friends with. There is literally never a dull moment with Jacky around!

A book about a girl who is orphaned and her family taken away from her. She lives with other orphans under a bridge. She wants more, so she gets on a ship called the dolphin. Disguised as a boy she has some trouble hidding that shes a girl. She gets into battle does some fighting and falls for a guy. Funny and interesting, a good read.
