Children Ages 10+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

This Newbery Award-winning story tenderly intertwines threads of love, loss and growth. Thirteen-year-old Sal, journeying with Gram and Gramps to find her mother, tells the story of Phoebe, whose mother disappears and then returns. Eventually, Sal realizes that underneath Phoebe's story lies her own. Harper's insightful narration shows the depth of her relationship with the story and enhances its beauty. With warmth and awareness, she reveals Sal's deepest thoughts. Softly and tenderly, she shares Sal's memories of her mother. With sagacity and humor, she gives us Gram and Gramps. Listeners 12 years old and up will recognize this as a story that should be heard, not just read. R.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR/APR 98]
