my one hundred adventures by polly horvath

Jane lives with her three siblings and her Pulitzer-prize-winning poet mother, Felicity, in a house she describes as the "6th member of her family." She spends the summer with her best friend Victoria - hoping to have one hundred adventures. Jane is a thoughtful, sweet, and fun character and you'll enjoy listening to her thoughts as she handles a babysitting job, people being eaten by whales, and a variety of other situations. Horvath's writing style reminded me of Joan Bauer.
