Publisher Comments:

The British crown has placed a price on Jacky's head, and so she returns to the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston to lay low. But laying low isn't in the cards for a spunky lass who finds trouble even when she's not looking for it.
    
A school outing goes awry as Jacky and her classmates are abducted and forced into the hold of the Bloodhound, a ship bound for the slave markets on the Barbary Coast. All of Jacky's ingenuity, determination, and plain old good luck will be put to the test as she rallies her classmates to fight together to avoid being sold on the auction block in this new installment of the Bloody Jack Adventures.

 

Synopsis:

Can the irrepressible Jacky Faber and her schoolmates put aside their differences and work together to avoid being sold on the auction block?

Wanted for piracy in England, Jacky flees to the States to avoid detection. She goes back to school at Miss Pimm's and reunites with her old schoolmates. But the Crown is offering 250 pounds for her head, and it's only a matter of time before the word makes it to Boston. Unfortunately, before Jacky can be claimed by the British, she and nearly all her well-bred classmates are captured aboard a slaving ship, prisoners destined to be sold in Northern Africa.
Still well done, but there is one chapter that involves the tired storyline of a dream sequence. Not okay, and the author should know better. I was thoroughly disgusted; when you read the book, skip the chapter that begins when they spot another ship on the horizon.

I have read all of the books in the Bloody Jack Adventures and have enjoyed them emensly, but In the Belly of the Bloodhound was the best of all!!!! The plot was a little more realistic this time, but what truly makes this book a fantasic read is the characters. Mary (Jacky) is a fasinating and lively character that will keep readers coming back to adventure with her again and again. I can not wait for the next installment!!!
