"The sea, the sea, the sea. It rolled and rolled and called to me. Come in, it said, come in."
Thirteen-year-old Sophie hears the sea calling, promising adventure and a chance for discovery as she sets sail for England with her three uncles and two cousins. Sophie's cousin Cody isn't sure he has the strength to prove himself to the crew and to his father. Through Sophie's and Cody's travel logs, we hear stories of the past and the daily challenges of surviving at sea as The Wanderer sails toward its destination -- and its passengers search for their places in the world.

Review: The WandererUser Review - Cathy - Goodreads
Walk Two Moons & Chasing Redbird, both by Sharon Creech, are two of my favorite junior fiction books. The Wanderer did not disappoint. Knowing that 3/3 books I've read by Creech have been enjoyable, I want to read all of her other books, too! Read full review
Review: The WandererUser Review - Trene1968 - Goodreads
just started tonight - think this will be an excellent family read aloud. oh I loved it! beautiful, poignant story. the girls were a little antsy at the beginning - thought it was too slow - but it built in excitement - had suspense and a bit of mystery as well. really lovely story...
