Gramps says that I am a country girl at heart, and that is true. I have lived most of my thirteen years in Baybanks, Kentucky, which is not much more than a caboodle of houses roosting in a green spot alongside the Ohio River. (from the first line)
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.

In her own award-winning style, 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.

From the Publisher:
Alternately humorous, mysterious, and moving, an exploration of the life of young Samantha Hiddle shows how she comes to understand aspects of that life, including her feelings about her missing mother, as she travels across country with her eccentric grandparents.
Author Bio
Sharon Creech
Although born in the United States, Sharon Creech has spent many years living in England. In fact, it was while living in England that Creech learned she had won the most prestigious American award for children's literature--the Newbery Medal for her 1995 novel WALK TWO MOONS. Creech's first book, ABSOLUTELY NORMAL CHAOS, was published in 1990. Raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Creech is a Graduate of Ohio's Hiram College and has a master's degree in English and writing from George Mason University. Creech also writes books for adults under the name Sharon Rigg.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"It's great that the hero on the archetypal quest here is a young woman in search of courage and identity....The storytelling is comic and affectionate, each chapter building to its own dramatic climax. Sal's voice is sometimes lost and lonely, expressing her grief and also her awe for the great country she's traveling through. We recognize that she's been struck physically and emotionally." - Hazel Rochman 05/21/1995
