  Booklist Review

With a price on her head for piracy, 16-year-old Jacky Faber takes shelter in an unexpected haven, her former boarding school in Boston. A boating excursion ends disastrously when Jacky and her fellow students are kidnapped and stowed in the hold of a ship that sails for the slave markets of North Africa. Is it possible that, against all odds, the wicked ruffians will be outwitted and overpowered by daring Jacky and the resourceful young ladies of the Lawson Peabody School? Readers of the three previous novels know that the real pleasure comes from watching this cunning, unconventional, warmhearted heroine in action. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2006 Booklist
Summary
The British crown has placed a price on Jacky's head, and so she returns to the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston to lay low. But laying low isn't in the cards for a spunky lass who finds trouble even when she's not looking for it. A school outing goes awry as Jacky and her classmates are abducted and forced into the hold of the Bloodhound, a ship bound for the slave markets on the Barbary Coast. All of Jacky's ingenuity, determination, and plain old good luck will be put to the test as she rallies her classmates to fight together to avoid being sold on the auction block in this new installment of the Bloody Jack Adventures.
