What’s the best way to multi-task? By reading two stories in one book, and that’s what Walk Two Moons lets you do. Salamanca (Sal) Tree Hiddle is in the car with her grandparents. Sounds boring, right? But what they are setting out to do in that car ride is far more important to Sal than anything else. Finding her mother.
See, a while ago, Sal’s mother left Sal and her father, going on a spiritual quest and promising to return. But she does not return. So Sal and her father move to Ohio, where she meets Phoebe Winterbottom. This is where the stories connect.

As these stories intertwine throughout the book, they make you ponder and the parts and decisions and journeys that occurred. I know several people, kids and adults, whose favorite book is this one, “..by a landslide!” Read Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech and you may become one of these people.
