"Walk Two Moons" by Sharon Creech (click for my response)

This has been on my personal to read list for years, and I'm glad I finally read it. I really liked the way the stories interwove. I liked the character of Sal and I loved the grandparents. Great book- however, I would warn you that if you have trouble reading more than one story at a time, you might get frustrated with this book. It goes back and forth from the present, past, and the story Sal is telling.
