Journey to the River Sea

by Elyn on May 9, 2008

"Journey to the River Sea", by Eva Ibbotson is a wonderful book and an exciting read. Without being preachy or simplistic, it shows the journey of one Maia, a young girl from Briton, who travels to the Amazon after her parents are killed in an accident. Supposedly, she is going to live with caring reletives who will raise her properly, but it turns out that the Carters (her father's second cousin and his wife and twin daughters) are more interested in the money they get paid for her upkeep than in Maia herself. Greedy, spiteful twins, a creepy collection of glass eyes, and a crazed bug-killer make up the Carter family, who live on a failing rubber plantation in the jungle while all the while pretending they still live in England. A home-sick, British boy acter, a reluctant hier, and a stern-but-fascination governess all combine to make this story of Maia's Amazon a beautiful read, and the ending is positively sterling. A must-have for all would-be adventurers, Amazon enthusiests, or just those who love a good book.
