THE WINNER OF a National Book Award, a Newbery Honor, and countless other awards has written her richest, most spirited book yet, filled with characters that readers will love, and never forget.
Jane is 12 years old, and she is ready for adventures, to move beyond the world of her siblings and single mother and their house by the sea, and step into the Òknow-not what.Ó And, over the summer, adventures do seem to find Jane, whether itÕs a thrilling ride in a hot-air balloon, the appearances of a slew of possible fathers, or a weird new friendship with a preacher and psychic wannabe. Most important, thereÕs JaneÕs discovery of what lies at the heart of all great adventures: that itÕs not what happens to you that matters, but what you learn about yourself.
And don't miss Polly Horvath's Northward to the Moon, the sequel to My One Hundred Adventures.
