This is not an adventure-a-minute sort of book. You will never seen your heroine, Jacky, single-handedly besting entire pirate crews with her little knife. She makes mistakes out of fear, and just plain foolishness. Author L.A. Meyer provides a even stronger sense of reality to Jacky by giving her the most remarkable distant voice. The tone of the book sometimes is very dark. But through it all, Jacky remains a plucky, cheerful girl, bouncing quickly back from misfortune, who loves to eat, dance and feel the wind in her face. This book is unique and a wonderful read.
