Newbery Medal–winning author Katherine Applegate says this magnificent second book in the Voyage of Lucy P. Simmons series is "a grand and adventurous tale."
Ever since Lucy's parents drowned at sea, she's been protected by special magic. This magic saved Lucy from her greedy uncle by transforming her house into a ship.
Now her home is the ocean, and her family is a ragtag crew. Together, they set sail for Australia to find Lucy's last living relative, Aunt Pru.
But a mysterious family curse still haunts Lucy. If she doesn't unlock her family's secrets before her enemies do, the sea might draw her into its stormy depths.
Readers who love middle-grade novels like Avi's The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle or the American Girl books will be swept away by Lucy at Sea.
