Brilliantly told, Journey to the River Sea is the story of young Maia, who is sent from her boarding school in England to live with her snobbish relatives on the Amazon River. Here she befriends a boy who knows the river and its ways, and another who wishes he is British royalty. Between these three the plot thickens, with impersonations, tragedy, mystery, and, eventually, triumph.
