Jacky Faber is back!  We first met young Jacky when she disguised herself as a sailor and worked aboard a ship.  When she was found out, she was put off the ship.  After all, it just isn't proper for a girl to work as a sailor in the 1800s. Now Jacky finds herself at a prestigious girls school in Beacon Hill.  The best of the best girls attend the school and poor Jacky just doesn't fit in.  She tries.  She really does.  But she just can't help herself.  Can you picture her trying to become a lady?  And through it all, she only hopes that Jamie Fletcher will still want to marry her when she is of age.  Sit back and enjoy the second Bloody Jack adventure!
