Mississippi Jack is the newest addition to the Bloody Jack Adventures, a rollicking series about a young London street urchin who disguises herself as a boy, joins a ship’s crew, and falls in love with the ocean, sailing, and a ship’s boy named Jamie. Throughout the books, Jackie sails through countless astounding, sometimes laugh-out-loud, sometimes hair-raising adventures. Jackie is an astonishingly lovable protagonist – she’s this amazingly resourceful, high-spirited, cocky, headstrong, impulsive teenage girl with a lot of kindhearted, well-meaning, and believable personality. Jackie’s first-person narrative is fast-paced, suspenseful, and remarkably entertaining. I loved the other books in the series, and was anxious to discover if it could be possible for L.A. Meyer to outdo the previous installments. I wasn’t disappointed – the “waterborne adventures” in this book are just as exceptional as the others, and the new characters Jackie meets as she travels down the Mighty Mississippi are fabulous – especially my favorite, the “tall-tale hero” (with a soft side) Mike Fink. This book is definitely one of my all-time favorites, and I highly recommend it.
