Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer is the first novel in the 'A Bloody Jack Adventure' series. This novel/series falls into the young adult genre.
I first learned about Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer at least 5.5 years ago from a postal worker I knew in Carpinteria, California, who was also an avid reader like myself. She'd recommended this novel quite a bit, so I rushed out and purchased a paperback copy of Bloody Jack shortly after she recommended it to me. However, I didn't read Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer until this fall!
I enjoyed reading Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer. Jacky Farber is a fun leading character. She's a girl who poses as a boy so that she could work aboard a navy ship. It's fun to read abut her antics/life aboard a navy ship.
If you enjoy reading historical fiction, the young adult genre in general, pirates/seafaring novels, and coming of age novels, then you'll enjoy this novel.
Below is the plot summary for Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer from Amazon:
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'm giving Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
