Publisher's Summary

"How about a story? Spin us a yarn."Instantly, Phoebe Winterbottom came to mind."I could tell you an extensively strange story," I warned. "Oh, good!" Gram said. "Delicious!"And that is how I happened to tell them about Phoebe, her disappearing mother, and the lunatic. In her own award-winning style, 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.

Such a great story wonderfully told

I read this book years ago and loved it. Normally I wouldn't dare risk tainting the memory of such a great book by getting the audio as well, but I had read reviews that said Hope Davis was a wonderful narrator. She is. I laughed and cried listening to her tell this tale in the same spots that I laughed and cried when I read it myself.

Some Newbery Award winning books are just not my cup of tea being that I am about 25 years older than the book's intended audience. However, for some books it doesn't matter what age you are. They just are great stories told well. Walk Two Moons is just a fantastic book about a young girl's journey. Highly recommended.

Assigned Reading for School

My son was assigned this book for school, starting this week. I went ahead and listened beforehand and found myself sucked into a book that neither of us would normally listen to. He normally listens to books like Harry Potter, the Percy Jackson series, and books by Jonathan Stroud. I usually listen to science fiction, historical fiction and non-fiction. While the main character in this book learns many life lessons (her friend Phoebe reminds me of a friend I had when I was a girl), I found myself nodding my head about the manner that she learns them. It's a very interesting way in which the author is able to grasp the social influences in this age group. The scenes with the English teacher made me smile when the kids completely missed the point of the exercise, though I admit that the teacher went a bit overboard and was not careful in choosing the passages he read. I won't give away the end, but as an adult I could see it coming after only the first quarter of the book. I don't think my son will see it coming.
