In her own singularly beautiful style, Newbery Medal winner 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.

Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle, proud of her country roots and the "Indian-ness in her blood," travels from Ohio to Idaho with her eccentric grandparents. Along the way, she tells them of the story of Phoebe Winterbottom, who received mysterious messages, who met a "potential lunatic," and whose mother disappeared.

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.

This was a book that I totally judged by the cover at first, thinking it was boring. I was so mistaken. Walk Two Moons is a great book that everybody should take the opportunity to read, no matter your age. It's cute, and funny, and very enjoyable. I read this book in the 5th grade, and today, as I graduate from high school, it is still one of my favorite books.

Are you a crazy, spontaneous person? Do your friends complain about how random you are? Do you have trouble focusing on one thing for a long time? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech is the book for you. This is a story about a girl named Salamanca Hiddle, or Sal for short. She is coping with many problems. She is a farm girl who is moving to the city. Her mother left the family for Lewiston, Idaho without saying why. Sal and her father want her to come back very badly. Sal decides to go on a road trip with her grandparents to Idaho to see her mother. She tells a story to pass the time. It's about a girl named Phoebe Winterbottom. As the story goes on, it sounds very similar to Sal's life. Meanwhile, Gram and Gramps get into all kinds of silly trouble. Gramps tries to fix a woman's car and ends up disassembling the engine. The gang goes to a river and Gram is bitten by a snake. They stop at many historical sights along the way. This story is very random if you couldn't tell. I would recomend this book to everyone. It is different than other books. It manages to intertwine two stories and show the similarities between them. The book also throws in some interesting Native American quotes about life. It manages to put laughter and fun along with sadness and tragedy. Walk Two Moons is a book that you should check out.

This is my absolute favorite book ever!! Sharon Creech did such a wonderful job writing it. No wonder it got a Newbery Medal! I read it when I was just in 3rd grade, but stopped because it was too hard for me to understand. I read it again an 4th grade and couldn't stop reading it. I just started 6th grade. Thank you, Sharon Creech for writing such a powerful novel for kids.

Mystery, comedy, sadness, and loss all mixed up in one big and extravagant book. I recomend you to read chasing red bird and absolutely normal chaos after this book. Sharon Creech is a great author. I highly reccomend this awesome book.

Sorry about the other review below. The plotline was interesting (in a good way) and phoebe's story was as captivating as sal's. I couldn't wait to hear both! The saddest part was when mrs. Cadaver told her about (im not going to say because it will spoil the book for anyone who doesnt know the ending) and sal went to bring her back anyways. I personally thought she would before i knew about blablabla. This was a good book. I recommend it to all people who have this as a summer reading book and those who dont. I would read it again and am looking foward to more books by this author :)

Creech has done it again. This book is amazing. The book talks about life and loss and I would highly reccomend this read for growing children. It takes a mature and understanding person to read this book. It mentions how you go through a mix of emotions loss and understanding other peoples problems through yours. I read it and it is wonderful and a shame if you dont read it.

In this book Sal&rsquo;s mom is gone. Sal dos not know she left. When Sal moves to the suburbs she meets phoebe. Phoebe helps Sal realize why her mom left. She tells this story to her grandparents on the way to see her mom. The car ride is long but Sal dos not care. They rush to make it on time. Sal hopes to get there on her mom&rsquo;s birthday. I gave this book 4 star because it has a fabulous story line. The one thing I didn&rsquo;t like was sometimes the book does not explain things. In my opinion the book is sad but that is also what makes it good. The book has a grate voice. So over all I loved the book.
