Dear Sharon Creech,
Sometimes we go day by day, not thinking of what is going to happen next year or what everyone else is doing. I was oblivious to any of this last year, so when my life-changing event happened I was in shock for a long time; until I read, Walk Two Moons.
My dad had been acting weird all year last year. Nobody said anything but I could tell something was up. He was more stressed and didn't joke as much. He was mad more easily and didn't let me play with his phone much. (I know that isn't a big deal but still a change.) It turns out my dad was having an affair.
I felt like I couldn't move on, like I was trapped in a never-ending dream. But the hardest thing of it all, like Sal I still had hopes it would all come back or together somehow. I read this book and wow I really knew how Sal felt. I'm glad somebody didn't die, but again it felt like somebody had disappeared (my dad and his personalities.) I just have to wait until they come back or learn to like their new life-style.
Sal gave me so much hope in my reading. I probably would've been a mess if I was in her shoes, but she stayed calm and still had hope! With my everyday life I learn not to give up so easily. There are such things as miracles and they sometimes have to come in the hardest and oddest ways possible.
Although it is very unlikely, everyday as I wake up I still hope and pray that my parents will get back together or my dad will realize what he had. But even if it doesn't happen I have to stop and enjoy life and thank God for the family and friends I have. Just like Sal accepted the fact that her mom wasn't coming back and her life was still going on.
So every day I don't let myself get too discouraged but I let life go on, and enjoy every pleasure possible. Thanks to this novel of yours, I know that no matter what happens in life the world still goes round. So thank you for writing this incredibly touching novel.
