The sea, the sea, the sea. It rolled and rolled and called to me. Come in, it said, come in.

Thirteen-year-old Sophie is the only girl amongst the surly crew of The Wanderer made up of her three uncles and two cousins. They sail across the Atlantic toward England, the land of Bompie, her grandfather. The sea calls to Sophie -- promising adventure and the chance to explore and discover. But the personal journey she takes brings her deeper into a forgotten past than she ever knew she could travel to.

Sophie's thirteen-year-old cousin Cody isn't even sure why his father brought him along on this voyage. Everyone, including his dad, thinks he's nothing but a knuckle headed doofus. But behind all the goofing off, he wonders if he has the strength to prove himself to the crew and to his father.

Through Sophie's and Cody's travel logs, the amazing experiences of these six wanderers and their perilous journey unfold. Stories of the past and the daily challenges to survive at sea swirl together as The Wanderer sails toward its destination, and its passengers search for their places in the world.

Newbery Award winner Sharon Creech's newest novel is an adventure-filled story of a courageous girl's journey across the ocean and into the memories of her tragic past. Sophie's struggle to reclaim who she is inspires similar exploration from those around her -- as the crew discovers the joys and trials of belonging to a family.

Sharon creech does it again. An amazing book vivid with visual prose and a narrator that makes her world come to life in a unique way where you're unsure of the characters reliability in telling her own story keeping you anticipating the next.
Whitestone
An enjoyable read that explores multigenerational family dynamics and the nature of memory and storytelling in the midst of an exciting adventure at sea.
Beahelm
This is a book that will touch your heart. As an adult I thoroughly enjoyed it. You will laugh and you will cry (or at least have some 'warm, fuzzy moments). Totally appropriate for upper primary and above. I'm not giving anything away, simply pick the book up and enjoy. Highly recommended.
Nuliax
My 11 year old son's favorite book.

Good read, especially when you are traveling.
Freaky Hook
Sharon Creech is a wonderful writer and this is a good book, however if you haven't read "Walk Two Moons" (her Newbery award winner), then you should read that first. (Or maybe not, if you want to save the best for last....)
My problem with this book is that, even for a childrens book, it is too simplistic and silly at times: the child's simple view of life helping the adults see where they went wrong... That sort of thing.
Love Sharon Creech books! Great read!
