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.

    " I am surprised that this book was listed as a children's book. It is about a 12 year old girl. But many of the themes are more adult. I would put it as a Young Adult book geared toward middle or high school and older. I found it rich and endearing. Jane is 12 and the oldest of four children. It's a wonderful depiction of being that age, the innocence and excitement of life at that age. I would recommend this book. Just as "Secret Life of Bees" was about a young girl and life around her, but written for adults, this book will probably speak more to adults than to children. "

    " I wish I had the book in front of me so I could quote some of the good lines in it. As usual, Polly Horvath is able to blend humor and longing so seamlessly that we are able to easily move from one emotion as a reader looking in on a scene and as a reader feeling what the characters are feeling. The plot is not as "out there" as some of her other books, but it has its moments. The ending may appear to be a little pat but in fact it opens up so many new possibilities for the characters that I wanted the story to just keep going. Jane's adventures may not seem that adventuresome to some folks, but I thought they were great! "

    " This was a lovely book in some ways--beautiful setting, realistic characters. But something was missing for me. While reading it I kept thinking, as I often due while reading children's and YA books, "What child would want to read this?" and I could not answer that question. Overall I liked it, but it's not a book I'll likely think about again now that's it's finished. "
