Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson
When young orphaned Maia is sent to live with the Carters in the Amazon, she dreams of a happy life. But dreams can't always tell the truth. The Carters are horrible, Beatrice and Gwendolyn (A.K.A, the twins) only care about themselves. Mrs. Carter is the same, and Mr. Carter is shut in his office all day. To Maia living with the Carters is like a prison. That is, until she meets Finn, an adventurous runaway with two detectives on his trail. The crows, as Maia calls them, are trying to catch Finn and take him to his wealthy grandfather. Can Maia help Finn escape the crows? Can Maia escape the Carters? Find out in Journey to the River Sea.
Journey to the River Sea is a GREAT mystery full of suspense, friendship, and adventure. You'll wish it would never end.
