Review: Maiden Voyage

User Review  - Heather Sunseri - Goodreads

I loved this memoir of an eighteen-year old who sailed ALONE around the world in two years. She met friends, found love, and discovered just what she was capable of during this adventure. I recommend this to high school students on up. Read full review

User Review  - Mary - Goodreads

5 stars for the accomplishment. I was blown away by how unprepared she was, and that her dad let her go (pushed her?) without making sure she could at least navigate. Inspirational story. Read full review
