This book portrays innocence, simplicity, and feeling of wonder seen through the eyes of protagonist Salamanca Tree Hiddle. It also has sadness and confusion. But it's the mix of all these different emotions as Salamanca searches for her mother that make this one of the most touching books I have ever read. I first read it in high school, and have read it periodically now that I am in my late twenties. Whether you are a young adult or a "full-grown" adult, I would strongly recommend this book.

I read this as part of a children's literature course in college several years ago and it has become one of my favorite books. Despite the simple storytelling, I can't think of many better examples of structure and plot-pacing. And protagonist Sal is unforgettable.

"Synopsis" by , 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.

Supports the Common Core State Standards

"Synopsis" by , On a long car trip from Ohio to Idaho, 13-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle regales her grandparents with a story about her friend Phoebe, who receives a message from a potential lunatic and must cope with the disappearance of her mother. Beneath Phoebe's story is Sal's own--and her seach for her own mother who left for Idaho one sunny morning and never returned. 1995 Newery Medal winner. ALA Notable Children's Book of 1995. School Library Journal Best Books of the Year, 1994. 1995 Notable Trade Books in the Language Arts.
