This is one of my favorite books of all time! It has everything, historical facts, thrilling adventure. I love the characters and the plot line. Eva Ibbotson is also a remarkable writer and I have enjoyed many of her other novels. This was a step away from her normal fantasy but I loved it. I would recommend this book to  unconventional adventure seekers.

This is actually a really good book compared to Ibbotson's other books which were more for a younger age group.
Maia is an orphan living in a girls' shcool. The her guardian manages to track down some distant relation - a mr carter living in the amazon with his wife and twin daughters.
Maia is eager to go and live with them and she is sent on a ship with a governess to brazil. But when she arrives the family aren't quite what she expected. they only took her in for the money they were getting from her guardian.
i won't spoil the ending for you but this is a good book

When Maia, an English orphan, gets news that she will travel to the Amazon with her new governess to stay with her relatives, Maia thinks that she will be able to explore the beautiful area and view the spectacular wildlife. During the journey to the Amazon, she meets Clovis, an actor traveling with his fellow actors and actresses. Maia's relatives turn out to be spoiled and greedy people. They aren't too fond of Maia, who soon finds out why they wanted her to stay with them in the first place. Maia meets Finn, a boy that is rich heir, but prefers to stay with his indian friends. Finn's grandfather is trying hard to get Finn to come back, so he can have an heir to his property. All three children are not looking forward to their futures, and Maia often sneaks out to meet the other boys. But the three friends work together with some help of others to solve their problems and create a brighter future.
