Read in July, 2010

13 yr. old Sophie goes on a trip from Connecticut to England in a ship called The Wanderer with three uncles and two cousins. Along the way, each of the characters' lives unfold, and Sophie's past life slowly reveals itself. Written from the point of view of Sophie and her cousin Cody's travel logs. I gave this book a 4 because although it has good characters and foreshadowing, the author fails to give a sense of significance to the story. It's a bit too stream-of-consciousness, and leaves the reader wondering, "So what?"
