I Am Grateful For: Walk Two Moons

Walk Two Moons
Sharon Creech

I'm thankful for this one because it reminded me how completely wonderful middle grade books can be.  Sharon Creech wrote a beautiful story about a young girl dealing with a difficult time.  It was touching and powerful.  

"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. 

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.


  1. Disappearing mother and a lunatic? You have my attention. I will be getting this book. Thanks for telling me about it.

  2. My youngest daughter loves this... it's one of her favorite books! :)
