I am really enjoying listening to the Jackie Faber series. It is set in the early 1800's in London, at least the first book is set in London. The main character is a young (12-15) year old girl who begins the series as an orphan. It is the tales and adventures of her life and she does get herself into some pretty interesting scrapes. I am on book 5 and each book has some of the same cast, but are totally different plots. Highly recommend if you like YA novels.
Here is a blurb from Goodreads
Bloody Jack (Bloody Jack #1)
by L.A. Meyer
Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of eighteenth-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas.
