When an unexpected tragedy forces her to leave her old gang, Mary Faber dons boys' clothes, takes the name "Jack," and joins the Royal Navy as a ship's boy. It's risky, but it certainly beats the bleak prospects of an orphan girl on the streets of London in 1803 . From there, she goes on numerous adventures all over Europe, America, and the open sea, makes unlikely friends, and falls in love... but even when everything seems perfect, trouble always manages to find her.

* PlatonicProstitution: As the protagonist is a SweetPollyOliver in her early teens who hasn't had any older female confidantes in the past few years, she winds up hiring a prostitute once she's on shore leave to fill her in on what is going on with her body (because of course, she can't ask the ship's surgeon).
