Alphabet Series: U

Under the Jolly Roger: Being an Account of the Further Nautical Adventures of Jacky Faber (Bloody Jack #3)

(I have very few books with U to pick from)

After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston—under dire circumstances, of course—Jacky Faber boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don’t go as planned, and soon Jacky is off on a wild misadventure at sea.”

Bloody Jack – #1:

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. . . .”

This is a very good book series.  It is finished, and there are 12 or 13 I think. The very first one, Bloody Jack, is written as she would speak and that can be hard to read for grammar people. It was hard for me. The cool thing about the series is that as it goes on, and she learns more, the writing/grammar improves.  The stories are always fun. The series was beginning to get a bit repetitive but he finished. And sadly the author passed away 😦
