This book shows that even a shy person can go on a journey and return home a different person.

Great Book
I loved this book. I think that if anybody is looking for a short but page-turning book to curl up in a chair with this is it. I got so caught up in the Ginnys feelings and thoughts.

It is a great book! I loved it.

This book was a quick read. I was immediately absorbed into Ginny's life. It's like I was her long lost friend who just came along for the ride. All of it clicked into place one little puzzle piece at a time during this book for me. Perhaps rather adventurous and probably not something you would do in real life, but that's called the willing suspension of disbelief and Johnson worked that well in this book. Perfect for the Middle School-High School level girl. This book is very easy to relate to and has the same flavor as The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Wonderful.

I like the book but the ending surprised me a little, one what happens with her and Kieth, and two what else does she do with the money? There should be a second book to wrap it up.

This book is really awesome and I would read it over and over again and I would recomend it to everyone!

Made Me Smile
This book was FANTASTIC. Not because it made a lot of sense, but because it made me happy, hopeful, and wanting more. I fully enjoyed this book, because I wanted to be where Ginny was, every step of the way.

Confusing for some?
This book might be confusing for the littler kids but as a teenager I quite enjoyed this book. The adventure that Ginny takes you through is magical and makes you want to experience a journey such as hers.
