Bloody Jack [on CD]

Bloody Jack
by L.A. Meyer [Compact Disc j Meyer]

Bloody 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
