Have you ever moved?  I don't mean from one side of the room to another but from one town to another.  I know I've moved several times.  When I decide to move my family to a new location, I visit the new town, find a house, make arrangements and am generally prepared for what I will find in our new home.  Now imagine your parents have just told you that you're moving to a new home.  They have never seen it.  As a matter of fact, no one they know have ever seen it.  The year is 1620 and you and your family are going to leave behind everything you've ever known to start over in the New World.  At first, you are very excited.  What an adventure!  But then, just maybe, you start having some doubts about what you're life will be like.  Giles is a 13 year old boy who is about to set out on the journey of a lifetime.  He is excited but also a bit nervous about what he will find on the other side of the Atlantic.  Join Giles as he travels to the new world in GILES' JOURNEY
