"A dynamic montage of dark and light moments, this novel shows rather than tells Jane's changing moods, her ambivalent feelings about being uprooted, and her quiet observations of her unpredictable yet endearing family members."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this sequel to MY ONE HUNDRED ADVENTURES, Jane has been living in the wilds of Saskatchewan, longing for home while her stepfather teaches French at the local school. When it's discovered that he speaks no French, the family ditches town and drive to the Northwest to spend time with an old friend of Ned's. Soon, they go south, to Las Vegas, where more intrigues await them. Although Jane likes pretending to be on the run, like Jesse James, she misses their ramshackle house on the beach in Massachusetts. Returning home seems like a far away dream, but the uneven and fascinating reality of life with Ned is filled with surprises. Polly Horvath is also the author of THE CANNING SEASON.
Editors Note 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 doesn’t 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: Setting off by car, they visit the tribe of Native Americans with whom Ned once lived, head to Las Vegas in search of Ned’s magician brother, and wind up spending the summer with his eccentric mother on her ranch out west. As Jane lives through it all—developing a crush on a ranch hand, reevaluating her relationship with Ned, watching her sister Maya’s painful growing up—she sees her world, which used to be so safe and secure, shift in strange and inconvenient ways.From the Hardcover edition.
