"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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana C. | 2/14/2014

    " The layers to this book are subtle and deep. If a student has been abandoned by a parent, be prepared for strong emotional reaction. "

    " Beautiful young adult literature. This one broke my heart with a few tears. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Haley | 2/11/2014

    " My mom read this book to me when I was younger, and I have returned to it countless times over the years as a source of comfort and escape. Walk Two Moons has rightfully earned its spot as one of my favorite books, and continues to make me cry almost every time I read it. To me, it's a classic! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzy | 1/26/2014

    " Sharon Creech may just be my new favorite children's author. Her characters are lovely, flawed, and real. I'm always on the lookout for good books for my kids. Jack will have to skip this one for now because it would be too sad for him, but I think someday he'll really like it. Elise may get to it first! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katrina | 1/24/2014

    " Best short story everrrrr. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 1/24/2014

    " I though this book was great. It had lots of thought provoking things. I read this book as a class assignment and fell in love! I loved the POV from Sal. I though Phobe was a great character and loved the winter bottom family on general! Would recommend to ANYONE! I loved everything about this book. Spoiler Alert: The End will make you cry! ( I did) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 1/20/2014

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rianna L | 1/1/2014

    " I read that for Pre-AP English 2 in high school, I believe. I didn't like that there was cursing in there. I remember looking up what 'brothel' meant. Strange book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amaris | 12/26/2013

    " Sal is an amazing story teller. I will never forget this book. It was elegantly written and the scenes in it were both comical and thought provoking. I am incredibly glad I chose to read this. It has opened my mind and heart to other people and has changed the way I see the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 12/26/2013

    " I liked this book because it had lots of loss and happiness mixed together to create a great story. (Im sorry if I give horrible reviews) The main character's friend's family recieves letters from a lunatic (or so they thought). Will they ever figure out who it is? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Savannah | 12/13/2013

    " I read this book when I was a preteen, and it is still one of my favorites. I swear, Sharon Creech could write about cheese and make it interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 12/11/2013

    " This was not the best book I ever read, but it's just not my type of book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryann | 11/6/2013

    " Newbery award winning book. Loved it. Great characters, charming story. Maybe I like children's books because they have short chapters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dustin | 7/19/2013

    " I had to read this book for school. It was actually pretty good. "

    " It's really good, one story blended in another. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey Trump | 6/16/2013

    " Slow going at first, but a suprise ending. You can use this book to teach about predicting, but my guess is the students will be wrong. It's a good book that addresses kids with absent mothers, and the questions they have that may never be answered. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelani | 3/10/2013

    " I hardly ever consider rating books with five stars, but any book that gives me such an emotional reaction deserves high praise. I read Walk Two Moons for the first time at thirteen, & now, at twenty-two, I was again both charmed & heartbroken. I'd recommend it to anyone & everyone. "
