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.
And don't miss Polly Horvath's "Northward to the Moon, "the sequel to "My One Hundred Adventures."
