Alan Armstrong. Raleigh’s Page. New York: Random House Books for Young Readers, 2007.

Ever since he first learned about the New World, eleven-year-old Andrew has dreamed of going there himself and seeking his fortune. When his father decides to send him to London to become a page for Sir Walter Raleigh, Andrew is on his way to the adventure he craves. He faces homesickness, meanness from his fellow pages, and tests concocted by Sir Raleigh to prove his skills and loyalty. He also journeys to France and–finally!–the New World, where he becomes friends with an Algonquin boy named Sky.
