for her fans this will be another good book, just never resonated with her stories or characters ( )

Sequel to My One Hundred Adventures. This book follows Jane's family from Saskatchewan to Nevada to Massachusetts as they seek to get rid of a bag of money left by Jane's stepfather's brother. An okay story with an unsatisfying ending. ( )

When her stepfather loses his job in Saskatchewan, Jane and the rest of the family set off on a car trip, ending in Nevada after improbably being given a bag full of possibly stolen money.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375861106, Hardcover)

In this beautiful follow-up to the highly acclaimed My One Hundred Adventures, 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.
