The book "Walk Two Moons" was in my opinion, a very good book. It was written by Sharon Creech who has also written "Absolutely Normal Chaos". They involve the same characters but they're not sequels to one another. The book includes a quote; "Don't judge a man until you've walked two moons in his moccasins." It's very true and it relates to the book.
It starts out with 13-year-old Salamanca Tree Hill travels with her grandparents from her hometown of Ohio to Idaho where her mother is supposedly living. She's searching for her mother and hopes to find her before or on her birthday, which is only a week away. Since her mother ran from their family, she believes that the only time she will come home is on her birthday. Along the way they come upon many obstacles. They make frequent stops to rest, little accidents happen and many other crazy adventures. Salamanca, also known as Sal, starts out the trip praying that they won't get in an accident because she is afraid of car trips, but this one is extremely important so she is willing to take it. Throughout the trip, she graces her grandparents with the long story of Phoebe Winterbottom, a friend back home. During the story, she mentions other little stories about her other friends and things that remind her of her mother but still relate to the story about Phoebe Winterbottom.
The story about Phoebe Winterbottom reveals that Phoebe was faced with the problem of a "potential lunatic", receiving mysterious messages, and her mother going away. It's all connected in a very strange way. Beneath her story is Sal's story about her mother running away. Sal believes that the only chance for her family reuniting is getting her mother back home. All together, it's a very good and adventurous book and I highly recommend it.
