Walk Two Moons
Summary Of Walk Two Moons
(Page 51 & 52).
"Dont judge a man until you've walked two moons in his moccasin..."
"For me?" Phoebe said "I don't think so."
'Well who is it for?" Mrs Winterbottom said.
She was awfully worried. I believe she thought it came from the potential lunatic.
The Winterbottoms were getting many mysterious notes around the same time as the lunatic was saw around the family as well so they just assumed and judged that they were linked. As the story progressed you find out that the notes weren't ment to be scary or have a mean message infact they weren't linked with the lunatic. Mrs.Partrige was in fact the one leaving them on their door steps because she liked them and thought they were powerful. As for the lunatic he was still considered a threat the Phoebe and her family.
"Look quick, it's the lunatic."
"At the cash register."
"There's nobody there," Mary Lou said.
"Honest, he was there," Phoebe said. "I swear he was. Ask Sal."
"He was there," She said.
This shows that the girls are convinced he is bad even though they have very little information on him and in truth he is the son of Phoebe's mother in a different time in her life before Phoebe and the people she calls family now.
"On the far said of the lawn I saw the back of two people,
a young man and an older woman.
They were holding hands.
She turned to him and kissed his cheek."
"Phoebe-" On the bench was Phoebe's mother,
and she was kissing the lunatic."
Phoebe did not want to believe it as she saw it. She knew in her mind that her mom had ran away to love him, but she just could not believe that the mother she knew would do that. In truth, her mother did not. Her mother was going to visit her son she put up for adoption before her life with Phoebe. He was not a threat he just wanted to see his mother the whole time and she left for a few days to see him.
"Was she in love with mike?"
"He was awfully young-- not much older than Prudence."
As soon as she brings him home this is the first thing that pops into their minds before they know the truth of their relationship. It shows they expect the worse before they know all the information. So when she tells them he is her son their minds are puzzled as they tried so hard to convince themselves of that answer to the situation when it truly was not that answer.
