This novel by Sharon Creech follows Sophie, a thirteen year old orphan, on a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean on a small sailboat – crewed by her three uncles and two cousins. It is a suspenseful and interesting book about fitting in, dealing with the past, and finding one’s place in the world.

The story is told through Sophie’s diary, and through her cousin Cody’s diary, so it is interesting for both boys and girls. I think anyone would enjoy this well-written and thoughtful book.
