The third Jacky Faber book, now in paperback
Can the irrepressible Jacky Faber and her schoolmates put aside their differences and work together to avoid being sold on the auction block?
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 dont go as planned, and soon Jacky is off on a wild misadventure at sea.
On the very day that Jacky Faber is to wed her true love, she is kidnapped by British Naval Intelligence and forced to embark on yet another daring missionthis time to search for sunken Spanish gold. But when Jacky is involved, things dont always go as planned. Jacky has survived battles on the high seas, the stifling propriety of a Boston finishing school, and even confinement in a dank French prison. But no adventure has quite matched her opportunistic street-urchin desiresuntil now.
