BLACKWATER by Eve Bunting | Kirkus Reviews
We learned that when you do pranks you can’t take them back. Worked out great for my project for teaching middle school literature. I believe this teaches them about doing the right thing. This is a great book I liked it a lot everything works at in the end great book about honesty.
It is also sad.
It may be sad, but I would give it five stars no matter what. Maybe more you know. One person found this helpful.
A Kid’s Review 4. Thirteen year old Brodie Lynch is ready for the best summer of his life. But, blackeater his cousin Alex arrived that was all ruined. Because Alex came he couldn’t go on a camping trip with his best friend, John Sun, because Alex wouldn’t be able to be out in the wilderness alone.
John Sun blacwkater to leave for the summer.
He was also suppose to be going to the movies with Pauline Genero, but Alex ruined that. One morning Brodie woke up early to take Alex down to the blackwater at the part where it was damned to make a pond.
This pond was called Dikins pond and in the middle of it there was a big rock called the toadstool. He was going to teach alex how buntin swim.
When they arrived at the pond Brodie saw Pauline, the girl he was suppose to go to the movies with, with another guy, Otis. Brodie became jelous and hid their towels in a hole.
He than when out to the rock where they were sitting and started to pull at Pauline’s legs. He thought they were coming after him so he swam as hard as he could to shore. When he arrived to the shore he saw Pauline and Otis rolling down the Blackwater.
He tried to save them, but only injured his head. When the police arrived Alex said Otis pulled Pauline off the rock and said Alex tried to save them. They stuck with this lie for awhile. Soon Brodie starts recieving weird things like the towels rolled up from the whole. Pauline died and Otis was still missing and they thought Otis was still alive. Soon they received a paper that said tell.
They found Otis dead. Somenody else must have saw him. Will they tell the police or will Brodie become so guilty that blackwateg fesses up.
