THE WAKE OF THE LORELEI LEE Being an Account of the Adventures of Jacky Faber, on Her Way to Botany Bay

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Katherine Kellgren

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Thanks to Katherine Kellgren’s outstanding performance, Jacky Faber remains a sparkling heroine given to outrageous feats of derring-do. Believing herself pardoned, Jacky sails her sleek, well-armed ship, the LORELEI LEE, to London to finally marry her beloved Jaimy, whereupon she is unceremoniously arrested. Escaping the hangman’s noose, Jacky and 200 unsavory female prisoners are transported aboard the confiscated LORELEI LEE to a penal colony in Australia. En route, Jacky sings for her supper, dives for coins, rides an elephant, adopts an “untouchable” orphan boy, reconnects with some old friends—and enemies—longs for Jaimy, and encounters the notorious Chinese pirate, Cheng Shih, who makes Jacky her pet. Kellgren is simply sensational as she blends L.A. Meyer’s fictional and real historical personages into Jacky’s eighth thrill-a-minute adventure. S.J.H.
