Not my favorite. (AT ALL!)
I rate this book a 2 because it wasn't anything that i would have hoped it to be like! I mean i like nature and the sea and all, and thats why I read the book, but when I got to about chapter 10 I was then trying to force myself to read the book. It just wasn't something that really caught my attention at ALL! The only reason it gets one point higher than POOR is because, it was about the sea and the sea is a really beatiful thing to write about! And that ladies and gentleman is why I rated this book a 2!

Boring book
This book was very slow moving and a very boring book. There was no climax and the characters were hard to relate to. I am in 8th grade and it barely held my attention. I would not recomend this book to anyone. I don't care if it has won an award, it was BORING!

I did not like this book at all. I think it’s a waste of time to read it. I don’t know why anybody would like this book. It’s a story about a 13-year-old girl who was trying to find her grandfather. She has to, with her uncles and cousins, sail to England to find him. It seems to me that the story was very boring and it just went on and on and it did not have a point. It seemed that the characters where not fully introduced. You don’t now, and will never learn, about the characters appearance or there personality. The chapters are told by ether Cody or Sophie. I would of let all the characters have a paragraphs. Overall I would rate this book a 1 out of 5.

The Wanderer
Personally, I did not enjoy this book. I found myself forcing myself to read this 1/3 of the way through. I like books about the sea, but this book was just slow moving and not my type. I didn’t like how the book was worded. It was hard to understand. Also, I despised how the chapters would switch from character to character. If I would have wrote the book like that, I would have had a chapter for each character, not just Sophie and Cody. If you like books about a girl trying to get through hard life times, and family issues then I suggest this book for you. I just don’t enjoy this book. The characters were not described, and the scenes were not the best choice. Also, I felt like the book went on and on. There was no end. When it got to the ending, it just ended with no emotional feeling. The book had no purpose. Don’t read this book. Ever. You will be bored. I rate this Book a one not a two and not a five, a one. >=(
