After being exposed as a girl, Jacky Faber is forced to leave the Dolphin and attend the elite Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston. But growing up on the streets of London and fighting pirates never prepared Jacky for her toughest battle yet: learning how to be a lady. Everything she does is wrong. Her embroidery is deplorable, her French is atrocious, and her table manners--disgusting! And whenever Jacky roams the city in search of adventure, trouble is never far behind. Then there's the small matter of her blue anchor tattoo. . . . So will Jacky ever become a typical lady? Not bloody well likely! But whether she's triumphing over her snobbish classmates, avenging a serving girl's murder, or winning over a stubborn horse that's as fast as the wind, one thing's for sure: Jacky's new life in Boston is just as exciting as her old one on the high seas. AUTHOR L. A. Meyer is the award-winning author of the Bloody Jack Adventures, a series praised for its spirited heroine and rousing sense of adventure.The series includes Bloody Jack, Curse of the Blue Tattoo, Under the Jolly Roger, In the Belly of the Bloodhound, Mississippi Jack, My Bonny Light Horseman, Rapture of the Deep, and The Wake of the Lorelei Lee. REVIEWS In this second installment of the series begun with Bloody Jack (which PW called "a rattling good read"), Mary "Jacky" Faber goes ashore, enrolled in the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston where she helps solve a murder mystery. Publishers Weekly "Entertaining."--Booklist (starred review) "Sure to please fans of the first title, this adventure-packed historical novel also stands on its own."--School Library Journal "Compelling."--VOYA (5Q--highest rating) AGE 12+
