THE WINNER OF a National Book Award, a Newbery Honor, and countless other awards has written her richest, most spirited book yet, filled with characters that readers will love, and never forget. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, August 25, 2008:"[T]his quietly captivating novel marks a new course for National Book Award-winner Horvath."
Starred Review, School Library Journal, September 2008:"This is Horvath's most luminescent, beautifully written novel yet."
Review, Parenting Magazine, September 2008:"[T]his tale's full of sweetly memorable moments."
Starred Review, Booklist, June 1, 2008:“Unconventionality is Horvath’s stock and trade, but here the high quirkiness quotient rests easily against Jane’s inner story with its honest, childlike core. Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2008:"[A] witty, wise and wonderful novel."
