I thought that this was a pretty good book. it has a suprising end. When i was reading it, it seemed so predictable, but i learned otherwise. the plot is somewhat confusing, but if you stay on top of it, it'll be the best book you've read in a long time.

Amazing, awesome, undescribable in words. No wonder it got a Newberry Medal!!! I was drawn into its suspenseful plot about a fearsome trip across the ocean, and discoveries of the truth. This book is truly wonderful, astounding, astonishing, apprensive, and every other discribing word there is.

Sharon Creech is a phenominal author. The Wanderer is the story of a 13 year old girl, Sophie, and her 13 year old cousin, Cody. It is the story of their adventure while crossing the Atlantic Ocean to get to Bompie's, their grandpa, house in England. It was wonderful!

Sophie is the only girl aboard in this mystical, comical voyage across the sea to England with her three uncles and two cousins, the know-it-all brainy busybody Brian and charming, capricious, comical Cody. Her mysterious past leads her on her quest for England and discovery of the hazy tragedy she willed herself to forget. It's not all mystic; get reading for a rambunctions adventure across the sea.

I thought this was an excellent book because it involved adventure and action. Sophie is the girl who tells the story in her diary. After awhile I started to relate to her way of thinking, and in a way she is like me. She discovers once she gets to know someone it can totally change the way she once thought of this person. She is very kind but can be testy. In fact, some people think she is just plain weird when she starts telling stories that she says her "Bompie" (her foster parents' dad, her Grandpa) once told her but she has never met her real grandpa and that is why she is sailing across the ocean to Europe. She wants to meet her grandpa and take care of him. And she gets to sail in an old fashioned ship with her three uncles and her two cousins. This book is truly magical and you will never be able to put it down! I know I couldn't!
