Walk Two Moons
4th Quarter Independent Reading Assignment
By: Abbie Derrick
How this book inspired me:
2) "It seems to me that we can't explain all the truly awful things in the world like war and murder and brain tumors, and we can't fix these things, so we look at the frightening things that are closer to us and we magnify them until they burst open. Inside is something that we can manage, something that isn't as awful as it had at first seemed"(Creech 277).
2) The importance of this second quote is it is Sal saying that she can't look at her mother and grandma's death, or her father and Margaret Cadaver's relationship as things like war and disease that can't be solved, but to instead look at them in a different way, in a different pair of moccasins, and see the good in them, something that will get better. This quote shows Sal's bravery.
