Northward To The Moon by Polly Horvath is actually the sequel to My 100 Adventures, so if you want to read the full adventure of main character Jane Fielding, you’ll have to read the first book, well, first.


The Story

Thirteen-year-old Jane and her siblings Maya, Max and Herschel (they all have the same mom, but different dads), have lived in Saskatchewan, Canada, for a year – a whole world away from their house on the beach in Massachusetts – because their mom married a man who teaches French there. But when their step-dad loses his job, the family packs up and heads out on a road trip.


The road trip leads the family to Las Vegas, a horse ranch outside of Elko, Nevada, and finally back to their beach house again. Through it all, Jane makes the best of every situation – until her feels that her step-dad has betrayed her. She also develops her first crush on Ben, a silent but muscular young ranch hand who seems to be ignoring her.


The Bottom Line

Northward To The Moon is an interesting book that will make you think about issues like self-esteem, families and different social situations lots of kids find themselves in. It’s also about how the world around you changes as you grow up – maybe because it’s you who’s actually changing.

    I'd vote out - it costs us £350 million a week. Think of how much more money we'd have to spend on schools and the NHS. It's enough to build a new NHS hospital every week. Less than half of this is given back - and we have no say whatsoever where this money goes. Though of course, millions are spent on limos and expenses for Euro MPs.  We'd be in charge of our borders. We can control who comes in and who goes out, which is generally safer, and we won't be overruled by EU judges. Worried about jobs? The EU stops us from signing our own trade deals with countries like Australia, or growing economies like China or Brazil. I personally don't think there'd be an huge loss of jobs, but if jobs are lost, they can quickly be recovered through these new trade deals, and help us thrive economically.
