I was made by my teacher to read this book and so i sat down one night and started to read it was just once i picked it up i counld not put it down and so i finished half the book in one day. I really liked the book and it was somewhat showing girls can do anything. And went they went on the trip and everyone learned how to do something from everyone i thought that was really cool.

I loved this book!

it was the best summer reading book i've read in a while!! I think i liked it so much because of my love for adventure, sailing and the open seas.

i rate this book a 5 out of 5 and would DEFFINETLY recomend it to everyone!DEFFINETLYloved

I had read this book in the fifth grade after grabbing it from the shelfs in the library. I was captivated by the way Sophie and Cody felt on their journey to Bombie. Now I'm in the eighth grade and I still only remember a little of the story. It was an excellent story filled with thoughts and wanders of the past and of what lay ahead of them. It's sort of hard to talk about this book since I haven't read it for a long time but what I really know is that I had enjoyed it greatly and I would enjoy reading it again. Not because I thought it was excellent but because of the detail and the way that Sharon Creech had written it to bring you into the story and have you feel as though you were on the Wanderer with Sophie and Cody. I hope you buy and read this book for many years to come. Ciao.

The Wanderer is one of the best books I've ever read. The ending is more satisfying than Chasing Redbird, but the two books have many similarities.

I absolutly adored this book! I loved it so much that I did a report on it. The Wanderer catches you up in the story and sweeps you off your feet. I cried, I laughed and I did both at the same time while reading the superb book. This book is good not only because you feel as if you were Sophie trying to make your adopted family love you but beacause it is just mystical and magical this book is for the elf angel in you. I actuly kissed the book when I was done.
