One to read : Sharon Creech 'Walk Two Moons'

Hello dear readers! Today I felt like posting about "Walk Two Moons" - the book I read a while ago when I was fifteen. It is young-adult fiction and I probably should have read it earlier, but was introduced to this book by my friend only at that age. Even though it is mainly targeted at young audience, I still, to this day find interesting and beautiful some of the quotes I've written out back then. So here they are! Some extracts from "Walk two moons" by Sharon Creech, enjoy!

"Sometimes you know in your heart you love someone, but you have to go away before your head can figure it out."

"As the days went on, many things were harder and sadder, but some things were strangely easier. When she had been there, I was like a mirror. If she was happy, I was happy. If she was sad, I was sad. For the first few days after she left, I felt numb, non-feeling. I didn't know how to feel. I would find myself looking around for her, to see what I might want to feel."

"Don't judge a man until you've walked two moons in his moccasins."

"I thought he might have few squirrels in the attic of his brain."

"He was tall and slim, and he had enormous deep cowlike eyes that sparkled all over the place and when he turned these eyes on you, you felt as if his whole purpose in life was to stand there and listen to you, and you alone."

"Then the waves with their soft white hands grab the traveler. They drown him. They kill him. He's gone."

"He took my hand and stared at it for the longest time. His own hand was soft and warm. Mine was sweating like crazy. He was saying "Hm" and tracing the lines of my palm with his finger. It gave me the shivers but not in an entirely unpleasant way. The sun was beating down on us and I thought it might be nice to stay there forever with him just running his finger along my palm like that. I thought about newlY born horse who knows nothing and feels everything. I thought about the smooth-beautifully folded world."

"I was wishing I was invisible. Outside, the leaves were falling to the ground, and I was infinitely sad, sad down to my bones. I was sad for Phoebe and her parents and Prudence and Mike, sad for the leaves that were dying and sad for myself, for something I had lost."
