Teach This Lesson Book Summary Thirteen-year-old Sophie is the only girl among the surly crew of The Wanderer, made up of her three uncles and two cousins.
As they sail across the Atlantic toward England, the land of her grandfather, the sea calls to Sophie. But the personal journey she takes brings her deep into a forgotten past.

She discovered in college that she loved storytelling, and afterwards found a career teaching high school English and literature in England and Switzerland.

What do their attitudes reveal about their personalities? Cody is much more accepting of Sophie as a member of his family even though she was adopted, while Brian views her as an outsider and an intruder.
