Walk Two Moons Chapter 24 Summary

Birds of Sadness

  • Gram, Gramps, and Sal spend the night in a hotel with… waterbeds! Sal dreams she is floating down a river with her mother.
  • The next day, Sal dives right back in to her story about Phoebe.
  • Phoebe finds another message on the doorstep: "you can't keep the birds of happiness from flying overhead, but you can keep them from nesting in your hair."
  • At school, Phoebe is spinning lots of yarns about her mother and where her mother is.
  • Ben gives a report about Prometheus, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to humans. To punish him, Zeus chained him to a rock to have his liver pecked out by birds forevermore. Zeus, it turns out, also sent a troublesome woman, Pandora, to stir things up among the humans.
  • That night, Sal has dinner at the Finneys, and her dad has dinner with Mrs. Cadaver.
