Staff Reviews


This is my favorite book of all time, and one which I cannot go through a single day without thinking about. A coming of age story, it is relevant as a teenager, or as an adult looking back. Creech has done a masterful job of telling a story within a story, and of creating characters with whom we can identify and adore. A book about a journey, we travel along with the characters as they discover what we will do for those we love. --Brittany

Description


In her own singularly beautiful style, Newbery Medal winner 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.

Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle, proud of her country roots and the "Indian-ness in her blood," travels from Ohio to Idaho with her eccentric grandparents. Along the way, she tells them of the story of Phoebe Winterbottom, who received mysterious messages, who met a "potential lunatic," and whose mother disappeared.

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.
