Blackwater Summary

Blackwater by Eve Bunting

When a harmless prank goes too far, a boy must decide between a living lie or confessing the worst of all truths. Cutting edge fiction for the 11+ age group.

When a harmless prank goes too far, one teenager is drowned; another missing. The River Blackwater becomes a horrifying reminder of what Brodie has done and Alex has witnessed. One lie is told to cover it up - more follow making Brodie a hero, whilst inside, his guilt tears at him like the river's treacherous current. Mysterious notes are left at his door and a haunting question remains: Who else saw what really happened. Brodie has to decide between confessing the truth or living with fear and secret shame for the rest of his life.

A fast-moving, disturbing but often moving novel which explores the inner-most anguish of a thirteen-year-old boy as he struggles with his conscience. His loving parents - in particular, his father, help Alex to come to terms with what he has done.
