From the Publisher
"Don''t judge a man until you have walked two moons in his moccasins." As Salamanca Hiddle travels cross-country with her eccentric grandparents, she tells them the story of Phoebe Winterbottom, who met a "potential lunatic" and whose mother disappeared. Beneath Phoebe''s story is Salamanca''s own: Her mother left for Idaho, and although she promised to return, she has not. Sal hopes to bring her mother home, despite her father''s warning that she is "fishing in the air." This novel is in turns funny, mysterious and touching, as Salamanca comes to a new understanding of aspects of her life.


Booklist
Thirteen-year-old Sal Hiddle can''t deal with all the upheaval in her life. Her mother, Sugar, is in Idaho, and although Sugar promised to return before the tulips bloomed, she hasn''t come back. Instead, Mr. Hiddle has moved Sal from the farm she loves so much and has even taken up company with the unpleasantly named Mrs. Cadaver. Multilayered, the book tells the story of Sal''s trip to Idaho with her grandparents; and as the car clatters along, Sal tells her grandparents the story of her friend Phoebe, who receives messages from a "lunatic" and who must cope with the disappearance of her mother. The novel is ambitious and successful on many fronts: the characters, even the adults, are fully realized; the story certainly keeps readers'' interest; and the pacing is good throughout. But Creech''s surprises--that Phoebe''s mother has an illegitimate son and that Sugar is buried in Idaho, where she died after a bus accident--are obvious in the first case and contrived in the second. Sal knows her mother is dead; that Creech makes readers think otherwise seems a cheat, though one, it must be admitted, that may bother adults more than kids. Still, when Sal''s on the road with her grandparents, spinning Phoebe''s yarn and trying to untangle her own, this story sings. Ilene Cooper


1995 Newbery Award Selection Committee.
"The book is packed with humor and affection and is an odyssey of unexpected twists and surprising conclusions."


Ingram
