Walk Two Moons is a powerful story about a young girl finding answers and going on an adventure. Salamanca is struggling with her mom leaving and never returning. She decides to go on a trip with her grandparents to see her mom. They travel from Ohio to Idaho and make plenty of sight-seeing stops along the way; all these stops are the same as her mom's stops. As they travel, Sal tells her grandparents the story about her friend Phoebe whose mom also left. However, the way the two girls' stories end are completely different. This was a great novel to read and really caught me off guard with the ending. ( )

I first heard this book rather than reading it, on an audio tape from the library, in small instalments when I was cooking or washing up. I really lived with it over a couple of weeks and the voice of Kate Harper became woven with my thoughts and life. When I read the book later it was Kate Harper's voice that I heard. Often I don't like to have someone else's voice in a book and wish I had read the book first, but I love it here and wouldn't choose to have done anything else.

The first person narrative is also beautifully done. Very clever to have the actual narration inter-cut with the narrator telling other people's stories - not just Phoebe's, but almost every person who comes her way. ( )

I like the book as well but I heard it on tape first and the voice of this narrator really brought it alive for me. Instead of pinning down my imagination the reading opened new possibilities for me. I listened to the tape over a couple of weeks (doing the cooking and washing up) and for for that time I walked with the story quite intensely. ( )

Book on CD performed by Kate Harper

From the book jacket: "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.

My reactions
I never read this book, though I had heard of it. Well, I had heard the title, though I knew nothing about it. Somehow, I had it in my head that “Walk Two Moons” was the name of a Native American character in the novel. It isn’t. Rather it refers to a saying that you never really know someone until you’ve walked two moons in his moccasins.

I was completely drawn into the book from the beginning, as I learned that Sal was forced to move from her beloved Kentucky farm some 300 miles north to a town where there wasn’t even a tree in her yard. I could completely understand and empathize with her distress over this move. (Heck, I’m facing a move in the next year or so from my home to a smaller residence and I’m not happy about it … at all.)

I loved the intergenerational nature of this story. Sal is on a long road trip with her grandparents as she tells the story of Phoebe and the lunatic. It’s clear that she has a close relationship with Gram and Gramps, though she is sometimes embarrassed by their behavior. I was happy for her that this relationship gave her a sense of security and comfort, when her missing mother and her father’s methods of dealing with that absence did not seem to be what Sal needed.

I also like how Sal’s own story was revealed as she told the story of her friend Phoebe. The similarities – and differences – provided a way for Sal (and the reader) to absorb what had happened, to face the truth, even if coming at it sideways.

I finished it sitting in the car, crying. It is sad, but still a hopeful ending as Sal and her father come to terms with all that has happened and begin to find happiness again.

Kate Harper does a marvelous job performing the audiobook. She really brought these young teens to life: Sal, Phoebe, Ben and Mary Lou. And I loved the voice she used for Gram - Huzza Huzza! ( )

A richly layered novel about real and metaphorical journeys.

Deborah Stevenson (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, January 1995 (Vol. 48, No. 5))
Salamanca-Sal-grew up in Kentucky, but she and her father moved to Ohio after her mother's death; she and her grandparents are currently taking a road trip to Idaho, where her mother is buried. As they travel, Sal relates to her grandparents the story of her friend Phoebe, whose unhappy mother left Phoebe's family; Sal finds that recounting Phoebe's story helps her understand the desertion of her own mother, who was later killed when the bus taking her away from her family crashed. Creech skillfully keeps these layers separate but makes their interrelationship clear, and the plot moves along amid all this contemplation with the aid of a mysterious note-leaver, a local "lunatic," an eccentric English teacher, and Sal's budding romance, not to mention Mount Rushmore, Old Faithful, and a poisonous snakebite along the road of Sal's trip with her grandparents. The style is smooth and imaginative but cheerfully plain-spoken ("I wanted to jump up and say, 'Phoebe's mother has disappeared and that is why Phoebe is acting like a complete donkey,' but I didn't"), and the folksiness of Sal's grandparents (Sal's grandfather calls Sal his "chickabiddy" and his wife "gooseberry") is warm and uncontrived. Readers who enjoyed Barbara Hall's Dixie Storms (BCCB 7/90) will appreciate this strong and tender novel about all kinds of gain and loss. R*--Highly recommended as a book of special distinction. (c) Copyright 1995, The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois. 1994, HarperCollins, 280p, $15.89 and $16.00. Grades 7-12.

CCBC (Cooperative Children's Book Center Choices, 1994)
Singular, vividly realized characters are at the heart of this moving, funny and astonishing novel. On a cross-country trip to Idaho to visit her mother, thirteen-year-old Sal fascinates and delights her grandparents with the story of mystery surrounding her best friend Phoebe Winterbottom, or Peeby as Gram and Gramps refer to her. But in telling Phoebe's story, Sal is also telling her grandparent's her own - how she is dealing with the changes in her life since her mother left their Kentucky home and she and her father moved to Ohio. The narrative moves back and forth between Sal on the road with her grandparents and Sal's story of Phoebe, but throughout, she privately reflects on her own memories of life back in Kentucky before her mother went away, when things seemed calm and whole. The journey west with her grandparents, who are colorful, quirky characters with boundless love, is healing for Sal as she comes to understand and accept why her mother went away. An added bonus for Wisconsin readers are the stops Sal and her grandparents make in downtown Madison and the Wisconsin Dells as they journey west. Winner, 1994 CCBC Newbery Award Discussion. CCBC categories: Fiction For Children; Fiction For Teenagers. 1994, HarperCollins, 280 pages, $15.89. Ages 10-14.
