The Wanderer by Sharon Creech

The voice of Sophie sucked me right into this story! The lyrical text had me riding my own waves as I read the story. Thank goodness sea-sickness can’t follow you into a story! Sophie is sailing with her cousins and Uncles to England to visit her Bompie. She has many adventures on the way and learns a lot about herself and her family.

What I really liked about this book was the subtle mystery around Sophie. Why do her cousins think she’s making up stories about Bompie? What about Sophie’s past is such a secret that her Uncles tell her cousins they will have to wait to hear the truth from Sophie herself? Read the book and find out from Sophie yourself!
