Walk Two Moons
by Sharon Creech
Summary of Walk two Moons
In the novel Walk Two Moons, Sharon Creech uses hair to show the connection between Sal and her family. Both Mrs. Winterbottom and Sal's mom cut their long hair before they left. I'm assuming they cut their hair as part of a transformation. When Sal's dad told her to never cut her hair, it was another indicator that short or cut hair is a sign of disconnection.
"My mothers hair had been long and black, like mine, but a week before she left, she cut it." "My father said to me, 'Don't cut yours, Sal. Please don't cut yours.'." ( Creech 160)
