The Wanderer by Sharon Creech, John Beach, Dana Lubotsky

Thirteen-year-old Sophie is the only girl amongst the surly crew of The Wanderer, made up of her three uncles and two cousins. As they sail across the Atlantic toward England, the land of her grandfather, the sea calls to Sophie. But the personal journey she takes brings her deep into a forgotten past. Sophie's struggle to reclaim who she is inspires those around her, as the crew discovers the joys and trials of belonging to a family. Newbery Award winner Sharon Creech tells the adventure-filled story of a courageous girl's journey across the ocean and into the memories of her past.

The Wanderer is a very great book. The setting is not one place throughout the book, but a few places like the ocean. It is about a girl named Sophie. She loves boats and the seas. Her and her Uncle Dock, Mo, Brian, Cody, and Uncle Stew go on an amazing trip to see her "Bompie." Bompie is Sophie's grandfather. He lives in Grand Manan by himself ever since his wife died. My favorite part is when her and Cody go to a mysterious Island where there is to be a ghost. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting, wanting more.The conflict in this story is that Sophie can't remember her family past and just wants to learn more. Even though shes just with men trapped on a boat she still shows women can do things just as well as anyone could do. I would recommenced this book to anyone one who likes boats, or adventures, because this has had to been my favorite adventure book. So, go out there and read, "The Wanderer", By Sharon Creech.

Do you think a voyage with all boys would be fun? It may not be in Sophie's point of view. Sophie, Brian, Cody, Uncle Dock, Uncle Mo, and Uncle Stew go on a dangerous voyage across the ocean on a boat to England to find Bompie (Ulysses) who is the grandpa of Sophie, Brian, and Cody, and the father of Uncle Mo, Dock, and Stew. On their way, they are taking rest stops by Uncle Dock's command. No one else knows why, but really Dock is trying to find his love Rosalie. They also find out new things about each other, and they learn new skills, such as helping each other survive on their voyage, and they also learned juggling and Delta Code. Everyone, especially Brian, is wondering what happened to Sophie's real parents and if the stories she is telling about Bompie are true. We rated this story a 4 out of 5 because it has a lot of adventure, detail, and it is suspenseful. You will not want to put this book down! It is a perfect level book for middle schoolers. We recommend reading this book because we really liked it, and I am sure you would too! Sharon Creech is a great author! Read this book as soon as possible. You don't know what you are missing!

THE WANDERER This book is about a gilr named Sophie. The sea is calling her, and suddenly she knows she has to go with her three uncles and two cousins on the boat Uncle Dock is building. Her Mom thinks it will be too dangerous, but does Sophie care? Nope, she goes anyway. Her bratty cousin Brian is making lists of every possible thing you could think of, and her cousin Cody, (who is okay) is always goofing off at serious times. Sophie hopes she can make it across the sea with these five boys and great adventures. I think anyone would like this book who is interested in books with really good descripiton. It is a really good book because it is about a girl who has a lot of adventures with her cousins and feels bad because she is with a lot of boys. I like this because I can relate to it because I am the only girl in the family so I like someone else to know what the expierience is like to be stuck between so many crazy boys! I love this book. Anyone considering reading it, READ IT!!!!!! Ü Smile when you read the book! Ü

I read this book in my book club, and then purchased it for my daughter to read when she was old enough to deal with the content. It is a wonderfully written story, vivid imagery, great characterization and a satisfying conclusion. Great for adults as well as children 10+ I'd recommend. Sharon Creech has never let us down. A favorite author in our household. Also B&N - your service is exemplary, and I will never order books from another site, or shop at another store - you deserve all the business.

An amazing story lie, mysterious characters, and a slight sence of humor makes Sharon Creech's The Wanderer a mysterious and passionate novel i will never forget. The characters were all belivable. What i like most about them is how they all have a secret to them. It keeps the story interesting and entertaining. The setting is also real and belivable. The theme was brilliant. i would recommend this book to middle school kids because theyd enjoy the dramatic turns in the story.

That is exactly what this book told me. I discovered it on the book shelf of my fifth grade classroom library. There were a few other kids at the book shelf. I picked up The Wanderer and fliped too a random page and read a paragraph. The words were so descriptive, and the book was so thick. I am a faast reader, and Isome people say that I devour books. There is constantly a stack of books on my desk, and since I want to read so many books, I normaly don't reread a book right after I finish reading it. This book was different. I think I read it three or four times before moving on to a different book.
