Publisher Comments:

Gramps says that I am a country girl at heart, and that is true.

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.

Beneath Phoebe's stories Salamanca's own story and that of her mother, who left on April morning for Idaho, promising to return before the tulips bloomed. Sal's mother has not, however, returned, and the trip to Idaho takes on a growing urgency as Salamanca hopes to get to Idaho in time for her mother's birthday and bring her back, despite her father's warning that she is fishing in the air.

This richly layered novel is in turn funny, mysterious, and touching. Sharon Creech's original voice tells a story like no other, one that readers will not soon forget.

Sharon Creech drags you into a world of a young girl who leaves her beloved home behind to go to the city with her father. She then begins a wounderous journey that she brings you on. A journey of joys, sadness, and lessons learned. Sharon's colorful imagination allows you to see vividly the worl from the young girl's eyes. I enjoyed it so much I couldn't put it down... I read it twice in one day! It is a must read!
