Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 "know-not what." And, over the summer, adventures do seem to find Jane, whether it's 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, there's Jane's discovery of what lies at the heart of all great adventures: that it's not what happens to you that matters, but what you learn about yourself.

Review:

"Unconventionality is Horvath's stock and trade, but here the high quirkiness quotient rests easily against Jane’s inner story with its honest, childlike core." Booklist

Review:

"[A] witty, wise and wonderful novel." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The book is filled with pithy observations and memorable passages that invite immediate rereading and admiration. This is Horvath at the top of her game." School Library Journal

Review:

"[A]long with a plenitude of mundane, poetic moments, there's a vibrant current of story that doesn't end on the last page." Horn Book Magazine
