Walk Two Moons
I would say definitely buy this book because if you don't, you're really missing something great. This book is about a girl named Sal (Salamanca Tree Hiddle) who misses her mother--her mom left one day for Idaho--and
who also helps her friend, Phoebe Winterbottom, deal with her own mother leaving. Sal tells her grandparents all about
Phoebe's story on their way to Idaho to see her mother and realises that her own story lies underneath Phoebe's.
My favorite characters are Sal and her mom because Sal is a deep thinker and her mom seems very deep and as if she has a
lot of inner problems.
I loved the whole thing, except that some of the vocabulary is sort of weird--scads, caboodle, and wang-doodle--but in a way that added to Sal's personality. there's one line that made me cry, but I can't say because it would give away the ending.
