Newbery Honor Book * ALA Notable Children's Book"A beautifully written and imaginatively constructed novel that speaks to the power of survival and the delicacy of grief." --School Library Journal (starred review)This acclaimed bestselling Newbery Honor Book from multi-award-winning author Sharon Creech is a classic and moving story of adventure, self-discovery, and one girl's independence.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 so 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."Sophie is a quietly luminous heroine, and readers will rejoice in her voyage." --BCCB (starred review)Like Creech's Walk Two Moons and Chasing Redbird, this intimate novel poetically connects journey with self-discovery." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Sharon CreechPublisher: HarperCollinsPublished: 11/21/2011ISBN: 9780064410328Pages: 320Weight: 0.42lbsSize: 7.50h x 5.10w x 0.70dAward: Young Hoosier Book Award - NomineeAward: Young Hoosier Book Award - NomineeAward: Nutmeg Book Award - NomineeAward: Newbery Medal - Honor BookReview Citations: PW Notes and Reprints 04/01/2002 pg. 86Booksense '76 Childrens Spr 02 04/01/2002 pg. 1Kliatt 05/01/2002 pg. 18Publishers Weekly 04/01/2002Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 36678 / WandererReading Level: 5.2 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 6
