Jack is aboaut an orphan girl escaping dangerous street life to become a
pirate hunter on a British warship. They aren't hiring girls, so she dresses and
acts like a boy. Will she be safer onboard and will anyone discover her secret?
The reader Katherine Kellgren, does a great job speaking in cockney. This story
may be too adult for younger readers; the further volumes are in the Young Adult
collection, which may be a better age for this type of story, which talks of sex
and murder and has some profanity. This story has me curious enough to read the
next one in the Bloody Jack adventures. -- recommended by Kathy H. - Walt Branch Library
