Twelve

28 Jan

Rather than doing a countdown until Monday, the day the ALA Youth Media Awards are announced, perhaps you’ve noticed, I’ve been counting up.

Wild Rover No More is the twelfth and final novel in the Jacky Faber series by L. A. Meyer.

Unknown

It is full of the same Jacky Faber wit and adventure. I am only half way through the audiobook, but I am enjoying it as I have enjoyed all the others. This is bittersweet though, because this will truly be the last book. L.A. Meyer passed away just before the book came out, from complications from Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Publisher’s Weekly wrote a wonderful obituary, that you can read here.

What I have to mention is the fabulous job Katherine Kellgren has done narrating the series. She has won awards for a few of the Jacky books and I have sought out other audiobooks by her. She opens this audiobook with a tribute to L. A. Meyer.

So, in a fighting tribute to Jacky Faber, who loved Boston, here are the Dropkick Murphys. I think Jacky would like their attitude.
