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.

This book is full of suspense and is interesting. I really enjoyed the way the author wrote the book. It was kind of sad, but still, it was really good!!!!!!

Review:

This was one of the best books I ever read. Salamanca Tree Hill (Sal) is the main character, and a tree kisser (don't ask-read the book) and Pheobe is Sal's friend who thinks that everyone is a potential lunatic. The story is actually a story inside a story because Sal is on a trip to the grave of her dead mother for her mother's birthday, and along the way she is telling her grandparents the story of Pheobe and the lunatic/axe murderer/whatever Pheobe thought he was.
