The Little Girl Who Lived In The Well: Book Review
This is a story that the past effects the present in many ways. Roger Major has written a middle school novel entitled ‘The Little Girl Who Lived In The Well’. This is the story of two little ten-year old girls by the name of Emma and Wendy and how they solved a very cold case. This is a story of how friendship from different eras of time will meet with the belief of helping one another and their other relationships that are affected by their meeting.
Roger Major has written a story that will bring out many emotions for the reader. He is a writer who shows and tells how all the characters come together even through the use of technology. My favorite part was when Emma is out on the lake for I could picture Wendy trying to make herself known in any way she could. There was also another scene that I really liked was when Emma was teaching and showing Wendy all about the changes that has taken place since she died, and as in the use of the cell phone and using a camera phone.
The Little Girl Who Lived In The Well is a book that teachers could read as a relaxation tool in the classroom at the end of the day or even as a language arts lesson on writing a mystery. This book could also be used as a grief counseling group on how to deal with many aspects of living life.
A simple holiday with her parents to West Virginia turns into a magical experience for ten-year-old Emma Hopkins. Who is the mysterious young girl she befriends? And why can nobody else see her? Why is this girl so drawn to Emma? And where does she really live? Captivating Emma with her special powers, she brings adventure and fun of a different kind into her holiday.
Discovering the terrible truth about her friend, Emma sets out on a mission to seek Justice for the cruel injustice that had changed her friend’s life forever.
