a mind-boggling book,

This review is from: Walk Two Moons: Complete & Unabridged (Audio Cassette)
Walk Two Moons is, in my opinion, Sharon Creech's best book. It's moving and sad, yet uplifting and funny, all at once. It's told from the point of view of Salamanca Tree Hiddle, a thirteen year old girl who's trying to deal with a huge upheaval in her life - a new home and the sudden disappearance of her mother from her life. I particularly like the way Sal's friend Phoebe goes through a crisis of a similar kind and Sal, as an outside observer, is able to see how Phoebe's reactions parallel her own. I cared so much about the characters and they were all so believable I felt like I knew them myself. Phoebe was great and added a lot of humour to the story (I thought it was particularly funny when she kept talking about cholesterol and complained so much that Sal felt like throwing her out of the window). Walk Two Moons is a book that really gives you something to think about and I strongly suggest you buy it.
