KPE Episode 262: "Black Water"

"Black Water" by Eve Bunting

Angela and Selena from Room 17 do a great job of introducing this novel through KPE. Their lively discussion and cliffhanger ending (no spoilers in this podcast!) will leave you wanting to get the book out of the library.

This is what the publishers say about the book:
"Thirteen-year-old Brodie Lynch was ready for the perfect summer of adventure along the awesome Blackwater River. That was before everything changed forever. When a harmless prank goes too far, the unthinkable happens. Brodie's lies make him a hero, but inside, his guilt tears at him like the treacherous current of the Blackwater itself, which has become a horrifying reminder of his part in the tragedy. In this gripping new coming-of-age novel, a young boy is faced with a choice between right and wrong and ultimately learns that truth can offer hope in even the darkest moments."

  1. Hey Selena and Angela,

    I was just listening to your podcast and you two both did a very great review on the book you were reading. I really liked the way you spoke clearly through the microphone. I wish my new podcast coming up sounds just like that.

    From Sylvia.
