Thesis

Throughout the novel Walk Two Moons , Sharon Creech, the author, uses judgements to make the book more interesting.

Judgement 1: Mrs. Cadaver

One of the most important judgements in the book Walk Two Moons is the judgement made on Mrs. Cadaver. The first time Sharon Creech introduces this judgement, which is that Mrs. Cadaver killed her husband, was on page 32 when phoebe says " I think maybe she killed Mr. Cadaver and chopped him up and buried him in the backyard". The actual truth was not told until page 270 when Sal talks about how Mrs. Cadaver was on the same bus as Sals mother when it crashed and Mrs. Cadaver was the only survivor.

Judgement 2: Mr. Birkway

There was one other very important judgment made in this book made about the character known as Mr. Birkway. At the beginning of the book on page 86 Mr. Birkway was seen by Phoebe and Sal going up to Mrs. Cadaver and hugging her. He also talked to her and helped her move one of her plants to her backyard. The judgment made was that Mr. Birkway helped Mrs. Cadaver kill her husband. Later in the book on page 208 you find out that Mr. Birkway was Mrs. Cadavers twin brother and Mr. Cadaver died in a car accident.
