    In the third book of the "Bloody Jack" series, unlikely heroine Jacky Faber, a pirate at heart, returns to the sea in a truly swashbuckling tale filled with good humour, wit, and courage. After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston--under dire circumstances, of course - Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don't go as planned, and she is off on a wild misadventure at sea.

    Story

    I loved this book! I had my ear buds in constantly until I finished it. Jacky is back at sea where she belongs. The story moved quickly from one adventure to the next. I sometimes worried that the end was coming for Jacky, and had to remind myself that there are more books in the series. Even knowing she would come out in the end, I had to keep listening to hear what happened next.
    Although I am well past my teen years, as are my children, I am loving this series!

    Jacky Faber, Bloody Jack, is back, and this time, she's facing a situation far worse than a ship full of murderous pirates. Curse of the Blue Tattoo, L. A. Meyer's sequel to the enormous popular Bloody Jack, is just as bawdy and entertaining as the original.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book, but got a little frustrated with Jackie at times. She seemed a lot more intelligent in Bloody Jack! In this book she is a bit more like a teenager with little experience in real life. Perhaps she just needs to go back to sea because she is is more familiar with expectations on water than land. It was still worth reading, and I will get the 3rd book in the series. The narrator was amazing in this book, just like the first one!

    It is the middle of the 20th century, and in a home economics program at a prominent university, real babies are being used to teach mothering skills to young women. For a young man raised in these unlikely circumstances, finding real love and learning to trust will prove to be the work of a lifetime. In this captivating novel, bestselling author Lisa Grunwald gives us the sweeping tale of an irresistible hero and the many women who love him.

    Story

    The story had and interesting start, but went downhill from there. I didn't feel as though I knew the characters. Perhaps the author was trying to make us feel Henry's detachment from other people, but I felt detached from the characters as well. The social changes that occurred through Henry's life were interesting. I had not been aware of "practice babies." I enjoyed the references to changes in expectations of women.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    I really enjoyed this book. I believe it was written for a younger audience, but although I am over 50, I loved it!

    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 18th-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 book kept my interest as it was fast paced and entertaining. The narrator did a nice job with the accent. I will be gettting more books in this series.
