(From the publisher):
After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston—under dire circumstances, of course—Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to be reunited at last with her beloved Jaimy. But when she sees Jaimy holding hands with a beautiful young woman, Jacky's bent for jumping to conclusions sends her off on an unexpected wild misadventure at sea.
Taken aboard a ship against her will, Jacky thwarts the advances of its crazy captain, rallies the sailors to her side, and ultimately gains command of a ship in His Majesty's Royal Navy. But Jacky's adventures don't end there...Before she knows it, she's being called a pirate—and there's a price on her head.
