I think that it's a fairly good read.  I would probably hold off on reading it in grades that are lower than fifth.  There are some elements of maturation that need to be fully understood by a reader that can understand subtleties such as family background and so- called "secrets."  I think that fifth grade or sixth grade might be a good time to engage in the reading of the novel.  The challenges between daughter and mother are ones that might be able to better understood by the intermediate primary level and giving the book to these types of readers might allow more to be obtained from the reading of such a good book.

Walk Two Moons is one of my favorite novels for young adults. The reasons I like the book so much are because it was easy to put myself in the lead character's position, and because the author, Sharon Creech, does a great job of describing her characters.  By the end of the book, I felt like I knew all of them personally!  I remember being a little caught off guard by the ending, and I grieved right alongside the narrator.  I think it's definitely possible for children younger than fifth graders to enjoy and understand this book.  I could see someone in third or fourth grade being able to comprehend the deeper meanings found in the book.  I think the book gives more than enough detail for it to be enjoyed!
