blackwater

Bunting, Eve. Blackwater. NY: HarperTrophy/HarperCollins, 1999.

narrator: first-person, Brodie Lynch

Thirteen-year-old Brodie Lynch must make an ethical decision; he’s hindered by his cousin Alex and helped by Hannah, a neighboring girl who visits in the summer. Effective view from Brodie’s perspective of dealing with heavy-duty consequences. Contrast between Alex and Brodie also works well.
