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.

    Do You Think You're Hot or Not?

    • I'm good-looking... enough.
    • I'm pretty cute, if I do say so myself.
    • I am one hot, sexy, babe-alicious catch!
    • I'm not very attractive at all.

    A great post. Agree with this.People need to understand that such people do everything normally and even feel normally but just need a little help ocasionally, that doesn't mean you have been given the job of being their mom or big sister or brother or something. And they're fine and don't need your pity. And being amazed at what they can do is okay, but being superamazed and like, they're so smart wow, it's like you're saying that you thought they never had brains. The losers who pick on these people cannot be helped. Lol

    Uni you're more like me than I thought. But it's like, I'm tough. Don't like to show that I cry I hate to cry in front of people. I usually do the same thing when people are asleep and it hasn't been happening because I have vacations now but it'll start when school starts again. I don't think it's a problem unless you cry so so hard that it really freaks you out.
