It was a great book, good for all ages. It inspired me a lot!
Mario Lopez

I just wanted to say that I love "The Wanderer".It's a real cool book I really love you should make another book about Sophie and her family

It was pretty good.
I thought it was pretty good, but not the best there could be - I mean, it seemed pretty cliched in some parts and it just didn't really stick with me. Maybe it's personal opinion, but the book didn't make me really stop and think; it was just something I needed to read for a book report. It kept me hooked in some parts, but was so boring at times as well. Still, I'd recommend it to my friends, mainly because out of the other books on the reading list, this one isn't /too/ boring.

I thought this book was a well written book. Well I was reading this book it felt liked Iwas part of the crew of the Wanderer. The best stories are the stories that it feels like you are in the book.
