Summary: Thirteen-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle, proud of her country roots and the 'Indian-ness in her blood,' travels from Ohio to Idaho with her eccentric grandparents. Along the way, she tells them of the story of Phoebe Winterbottom, who received mysterious messages, who met a 'potential lunatic,' and whose mother disappeared. Beneath Phoebe's stories Salamanca's own story and that of her mother, who left on April morning for Idaho, promising to return before the tulips bloomed. Sal's mother has not, however, returned, and the trip to Idaho takes on a growing urgency as Salamanca hopes to get to Idaho in time for her mother's birthday and bring her back, despite her father's warning that she is fishing in the air.

I got this book from RIF and i loved it. It was really interesting to see want hapened to Pheobe, Salamanca, and Ben. It was cool how Pheobe's story was so similer to Salamanca's even though Salamanca's was much sadder.
