Review of: Under the Jolly Roger: Being an Account of the Further Nauticial Adventures of Jacky Faber (Bloody Jack #3) from my goodreads account.
These books should be listened to on audiobook! Up front I want everyone to know that the narrator is amazing, the accent spot on and the book is "look ridiculous laughing while driving" fun.
Favorite book so far in the series. Gone is the mopey Jackie of book 2, away from the Puritans and ladies of the Lawson Peabody School for Girls and back on the high seas at last. And that's where Jacky and this series belong!
SPOILERS AFTER THIS LINE
Of course Jacky gets into trouble immediately, is mistaken for a boy, ends up on a ship with a crazy captain with bad intentions on our favorite female midshipmen. But when has sketchy men stopped Jacky? She gets through it all with spunk and smiles, winning over the hearts of her shipmates and readers alike.
I like THIS Jacky. Gone is the moping and pining away for Jaimy. Better that she thinks he betrayed her. I like single and flirtatious Jacky. There are many men, both good and bad, who want Jacky. And she flirts and has fun, but none of them can have her. Instead of one boy, we have a slew of them-- Robin and Joseph Jared, a few others, and eventually Jaimy, but only briefly.
At times this series is ridiculous, but it's suppose to be! These books are pure fun--I'd go adventuring with Jacky any day. We'd find trouble, mischief, mayhem, cute boys and hopefully avoid the noose one more time!
