My One Hundred Adventures Publisher's Summary

The winner of a National Book Award, a Newbery Honor, and countless other accolades has written her richest, most spirited book yet.

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".

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 is Jane's discovery of what lies at the heart of all great adventures: that it is not what happens to you that matters, but what you learn about yourself.

    Jane and her family have moved to Canada . . . but not for long. When her stepfather, Ned, is fired from his job as a high school French teacher (seems he doesnt speak French), the family packs up and Jane embarks on a series of new adventures. At first, she imagines her family as a gang of outlaws, riding on horseback in masks, robbing trains, and traveling all the way to Mexico. But the reality is different.
