Newbery Honor Book * ALA Notable Children's Book
“A beautifully written and imaginatively constructed novel that speaks to the power of survival and the delicacy of grief.” —School Library Journal (starred review)
This acclaimed bestselling Newbery Honor Book from multi-award-winning author Sharon Creech is a classic and moving story of adventure, self-discovery, and one girl's independence.
Thirteen-year-old Sophie hears the sea calling, promising adventure and a chance for discovery as she sets sail for England with her three uncles and two cousins. Sophie’s cousin Cody isn’t so sure he has the strength to prove himself to the crew and to his father.
Through Sophie’s and Cody’s travel logs, we hear stories of the past and the daily challenges of surviving at sea as The Wanderer sails toward its destination—and its passengers search for their places in the world.
“Sophie is a quietly luminous heroine, and readers will rejoice in her voyage.” —BCCB (starred review)
"Like Creech's Walk Two Moons and Chasing Redbird, this intimate novel poetically connects journey with self-discovery.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Thank you everyone for visiting our site, and eventually our store. I, Jerry, worked and managed the old Hastings in Ardmore for 11 years from 1999-2010. After leaving in 2010, Hastings never left my heart, or how I went about managing other things throughout the course of the last 11 years. I have so many memories of the store that I can't imagine going back into retail in this fashion and not paying homage to the brand that taught me so much about managing and life. Sharing this venture with my significant other is a dream come true, and we can't wait to show you what we believe Hastings would look like in 2021 and beyond, through Hastings Toys and more!
