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!

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.
