Walk Two Moons (Summer Reading Edition)

Walk Two Moons - Sharon Creech I’m a bit shocked I didn’t read this as a kid, this would have been right up my alley. To be perfectly honest, I hadn’t even heard of this book until college. I had to take a few education classes for my minor and several of my teachers and peers raved about this book. I knew I needed to pick it up.The story is completely delightful. I find that a lot of children’s or middle grade authors have a hard time writing in the voice of a young person. Most of the time it sounds awkward or what an adult thinks a tween should sound like. Creech captured the voice of a 13 year old perfectly. Sal is the perfect narrator for the story. She has a ‘bounce’ to her voice and a bit of silliness in her storytelling skills.To read this rest of the review check out The Cheap Reader
