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.

    "Great book"

    I read this book to my kids years ago on a long car ride to a ski trip. I listened to it the other day on another long car ride. What a great book! I loved it even more the second time. Hope Davis does a wonderful job of reading and voicing. A definite recommendation!

    Story
    "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.

    "Wonderfully Told"

    The main character in Walk Too Moons is original and surprising, as is the storytelling. Well-deserving of its Newberry Medal and a wonderful read by actress Hope Davis

    Story
    "A coming of age story - a girl seeking her mother"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this book is really interesting and is about a girl traveling across country with her grandparents, following the route of the girl's mother, who left the family. The girl is not sure if her mother is dead or alive, and they are all traveling to find out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Walk Two Moons?

    The girl's growth and change during the book.


    Have you listened to any of Hope Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Thirteen-year-old Salamanca wants to find her mother - will she be dead or alive? Salamanca rides from Ohio to Idaho with her odd grandparents to find out, and along the way experiences love, loss, and a coming-of age.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for middle school students.

    "Heartbreaking"

    I wasn't expecting this book -which is a children's book- to be so touching. I listened to it with my son and was really effected by it.

    "Exceptionally well written YA fiction"

    Fully fleshed out characters, a compelling plot, and careful pacing makes this book part adventure, part coming of age novel, and partly a poignant reminder of how important family is in times of trouble. Highly recommended for ages 11-16.

    "Great for family road trip"

    Really well performed story that had some nice twists. Some delicate subject matter ( death, depression, a child placed with adoptive parents) but in my opinion fine for any age.
