This was a sweet coming of age story about love and loss. It was really three stories intertwined. During a road trip with her grandparents Hiddle, thirteeen-year-old Salamanca tells them the story of her friend Phoebe Winterbottom, whose mother disappeared, just as Salamanca's own mother disappeared. Phoebe thinks a lunatic kidnapped or murdered her mother, but Salamanca does not know why her own mother went away and never returned. That is why her Grams and Gramps are taking her to Idaho, so that she can be reunited with her missing mother. Salamanca learns a lot about her Grams and Gramps on the trip, about their love for one another, and when she finally reaches Idaho, she understands why her mother disappeared.
