Walk Two Moons
How about a story? Spin us a yarn. Instantly, Phoebe Winterbottom came to mind. I could tell you an extensively strange story, I warned. Oh, good! Gram said. Delicious! And that is how I happened to tell them about Phoebe, her disappearing mother, and the lunatic. As Sal entertains her grandparents with Phoebe's outrageous story, her own story begins to unfold--the story of a thirteen-year-old girl whose only wish is to be reunited with her missing mother. In her own award-winning style, Sharon Creech intricately weaves together two tales, one funny, one bittersweet, to create a heartwarming, compelling, and utterly moving story of love, loss, and the complexity of human emotion.
