Product Description

Amazon Review

Chasing Redbird is one of Sharon Creech's four novels written for children including the earlier prizewinning Walk Two Moons. In Chasing Redbird Creech's magnificent storytelling evokes the wilderness of the Kentucky countryside where bears and snakes and the thick undergrowth of an overgrown trail both challenges the young 13-year-old Zinny to solitary adventure and gives her the mental and physical space to deal with her repressed feelings about the death of her cousin when she was a toddler and with the very recent death of her dearly beloved mother-surrogate, "Redbird" aunt Jessie. As well as learning to face the painful fact of death, the novel is also about growing up, and coming to terms with the fears and hopes of adolescence and burgeoning sexuality. This is a stirring adventure story at the same time as being a deeply moving one. It is bound to win the hearts of younger teens. --Tamsin Palmer --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Its a great book to read if you enjoy adventure and like a book of mixed emotions. It made me cry, laugh, and think. Sharon Creech is a wonderful author. Her books all tell real life stories that I can personally relate to in some ways. I loved reading about Zinnys dream to accomplish uncovering the trail. This book doesnt only explain different situations, it is a real page turner. I couldnt put it down until I was done with it. Aslong as youve got the time, I reccomend for anyone able to read and comprehend, to read this book emidiatly. Dont pass up the opportunity.

This book was just like "Walk Two Moons". People who loved "Walk Two Moons" and Sal Hiddle will love THIS. The book is about Zinny Taylor and this trail she finds. I liked Zinny because she's funny and sweet, (not to mention that she's also a lot like Sal Hiddle) and the story was fab. I loved this story, and now this is added to my "Favorite" list. This book is really great, and if you don't read it,....... You're missing all the fun!

This was the first of Sharon Creech's books that I read, and I really enjoyed it. It's different from other teenage books, because it has an unpredictable ending. I will definitely be buying more of her books!
