This audiobook was a great antidote to a bad mood. It's only the second book which I'd read before, but this one had Jackie running all over old Boston. It's fun to imagine the familiar streets in a difference era. The series has gone on a bit too long, but these early ones are still fun. ( )

Just as entertaining as the first installment. I hope there are more... Part of the fun was the descriptions of Boston in 1803. Many of the street names are the same, just not as many sheep on the Commons now. (August 02, 2005) ( )

Usually, I hate melodrama. But when it is over the top and very amusing, it's fine !

Very entertaining. ( )

I love the stories and the characters - especially Jack, Amy, and Ezra. The strong tomboy turned lady is a jack-of-all-trades and takes us through significant historical times.

The language and graphic descriptions are pretty near to pornographic, though. It's too bad. I can't believe a young adult novel can contain such descriptions. Makes me wonder about the author... ( )

Narrated by Katherine Kellgren. Former ship boy Jacky Faber's adventures continue on land as she attempts to learn how to become a lady at a girls' boarding school. But Jacky is too irrepressible to be refined as she gets into dangerous scrapes and engages in behavior so not becoming of a virtuous young woman of the times! And that's why we love her, for her moxie. Kellgren narrates Jacky's story with full-on gusto...she IS Jacky Faber, and well-deserving of the Odyssey Award this production won. Very entertaining pool-side listening while on vacation. ( )
