Narrated mostly by Sophie, The Wanderer is told through alternating diary entries from Sophie and her cousin, the benevolent jokester Cody. The book opens with Sophie’s first diary entry. The reader learns that Sophie is a thirteen-year-old teenager surrounded by male cousins (Brian and Cody) and uncles (Mo, Dock, and Stew — whose real names are Moses, Jonah, and Ulysses).
