I judged this book by its cover (and its title) because I'm an idiot

I’m an idiot. For years my wife has told me to read Sharon Creech’s Newbury Award winning novel Walk Two Moons. I adore many of Sharon Creech’s other books (I can’t read Love That Dog without getting teary-eyed) and my wife has never steered me wrong in terms of literature, but I have never been able to get past the less-than-enticing title of the book and the even more unappealing cover.


Like I said, I’m an idiot.

My students became aware of my idiocy in regards to this book this year, so one of them brought in a copy of the book with its new cover:


It's a much better cover, but still, Walk Two Moons? Not a great title.

I really am an idiot.
