This is my all-time favorite book; I read it every year! In this historical fiction story, a young girl travels across the ocean on a ship to get back to her family from boarding school. When she leaves Europe her actions are bound by the thoughts and opinions of others, and when she gets off the boat, she thinks for herself.
This story is exciting, scary, funny, educational, and just plain wonderful!
Run, don't walk, to the library and pick this one up!!
An adventurous tale of a young girl who discovers her own courage and potential during a very unusual sea voyage. This story combines action and danger with interesting characters and a good deal of discovering who can you trust isn't always an easy determination.
