Overview

Bloody Jack: Being an Account of the Curious Adventures of Mary Jacky Faber, Ship's Boy (Bloody Jack Adventure Series #1) by L. A. Meyer


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. . . .

I started reading these a few years ago. Its one of my favorite series. I love all the trouble Jacky gets into. This is one of those series (for me at least) that when you read it, you Become the characters. I'd highly recommend this series to anyone....young or old. :)

I read this book while I was vacationing in Connecticut when I was a freshman. I bought the book when I was in a gift shop and I spent the next two days completely engulfed. My family was yelling and complaining about my rudeness, but they couldn't understand the draw to it. I'm now a senior getting ready to graduate and I have read all of the other books after Bloody Jack. I have loaned my series out to my friends and now they look like they are a hundred years old. The way that they look shows how good these books are. I must admit that the first chapter is gloomy, but the story picks up quickly and is one of my favorite series.

It was a wonderful book! Complete with adventure, suspense, and romance. And there's humour in every other line, so its a great read.

The Bloody Jack Adventures are truly the best books I have ever read. For LA Meyer never to write before, this is a true feat. His combonation of thrilling careers possibly makes this it. I hope he writes them for many more years, for they are truly something to cherish.

We have a girl disguises her self as a boy for a different life than the life on the streets after the deaths of her parents and sister. She then finds adventures and gains a different perspective on life while on the ship called the Dolphin pursuing Pirates around the world. I liked this book and the cover caught my attention plus i had finished another pirates book where two girls became she pirates than pretending to be boy pirates called Pirates by celia rees.

The Bloody Jack books are my all time favorite. I've been reading L. A. Meyer aince fourth grade! Love it love it love it! This certain novel was actually harder to follow than any other books of Mr. Meyer's that I've read, but I figured it out in the end. What's funny is that I used to think that he was a she, but in fifth grade I just happened to see the author's picture on the wax cover. You know, that thingy that goes over a couple books? Anyway, I have to go to sleep 'cause I stood up until 10:36 trying (and suceeding) to read Bloody Jack. I just looked at my clock and it is officially 11:51 PM! 'Night!

Good start to one of my favorite series. The setting is good, the characters and the descriptions of the ship as we get to know our main character and her crazy adventure on sea and land as the series goes on.

You must read the series in order. They build upon each other. Amusing, witty, most clever and certainly adventuresome. Suspensefully energetic with every turn of the page. Great writing methodology. Just a SUPER FUN SERIES!
