Winner Description: 
by Sharon Creech, and published by Joanna Cotler Books, HarperCollins
Winner Blurb: 

Sailing across the Atlantic with her uncles and cousins becomes a journey of discovery for thirteen-year-old Sophie in The Wanderer. In language as fluid and rhythmic as the sea itself, the carefully designed plot gradually reveals the truth of Sophie's past, as readers begin to wonder about this rag-tag crew.

"Through journal entries, Creech skillfully weaves multiple viewpoints into a story that speaks to the power of survival and the delicacy of grief."
