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.

Sharon Creech was on born July 29, 1945 in South Euclid, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. She was in college when she took literature and writing courses and became intrigued by story-telling. Later, she was a teacher (high school English and writing) in England and in Switzerland. Her novel Walk Two Moons received in 1995 Newbery Medal; T...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Valuable Read Overall, I was very satisfied with an ending that resolved all of the many subplots that ran through the book. I think that this book is a valuable read for any person of any age above 10 or 11. Each of the characters withing the story (and there were many) confronted challenges that resulted in their becoming a stronger person. I think that this is very valuable lesson for all children, and an important reminder for all adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! I was assigned this book for my novel studies group. Each of us was assigned a character, and I was Salamanca's (a.k.a Salamander's) grandmother (a.k.a Gayfeather). My favorite Character in the book was Phoebe (a.k.a Free-bee ice-bottom) because she had so many brothers and sisters (a.k.a brats). A.K.A...READ IT! READ IT, READ IT!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amber's review Walk two moons by sharon creech is a fabulous book. The main character Salamanca Hiddle was explaining a story of Phoebe Witterbottom. She explianed how they meet and how her mother just suddenly with out warning left while phoebe and prudence (her sister) were at school. I definately recomend this book to people who are having a rough time in life and tell them to just sit down and read it from begining to end . At a point you will just sit there and cry for the charatres. It makes you realize that there are people out there having a harder time then you. also if you want a good laugh to read it as well because sals grand parent are the funniest. You just have to read it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Book Review : Walk Two Moons Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech was an O.K. book , O.K. but not great. Walk Two Moons is a fictional novel for young readers that describes a 13 year old girls struggle when her mother leaves home and then dies in a bus accident. Salamanaca Tree Hiddle is the main character who is torn by her mothers death, but still doesn't believe that her beloved mother could possibly be dead. Sal meets a girl who has a problem parallel to hers, who helps Sal come to reality and realise that her mother has actually passed by helping Pheobe deal with her heartache. I enjoyed this story of a girl who needs to realise and be thankful for what she has , instead of clinging on to the past. This also a lesson that many people need to learn, instead of concentrating on what they don't have. I enjoyed all of the eccentric characters along with thrir unique personalities and their adventursome and interesting lives (especially Gram and Gramps whos
