Bridge to Wisemans Cove
Ok WELL this book is pretty much forced upon all high school students in Victoria so it does tend to be loathed. Though once you get past the hate factor it really is a wicked book that sends the reader on a emotional rollarcoster.
So its based on a character named Carl who along with his younger brother, Harley, are shipped off to his bogan aunt near the bay after his mother goes missing and his nineteen year old sister crumbles under the pressure of raising two young boys. Despite being naturally awkward he takes on the role of caring for his younger brother. Upon arriving at the beach he learns that there is an inbred hatred towards anyone bearing his last name. Carl meets a variety of people during his time with his Aunt and learns just how to live life and to stop 'playing dead'.
Included times that will make you cry, love scenes and heart warming moments.
Will give it a 3 1/2 out of 5. If you hate this book from studying it please read it again once your more mature because you'll find it means more now.
