Water Street

Water Street Water Street by Patricia Reilly Giff

rating: 4 of 5 stars

5 reasons to love this book:

1. The cover.
2. The main character is a 13-year old named Bird. (short for Bridget)
3. It is set in 19th Century Brooklyn during the building of the Brooklyn Bridge.
4. It includes the struggles of two Irish immigrant families.
5. It's about family, and healing, and hope.

I can't wait until my daughter gets old enough to read it. I think I'll read it with her then too.

I love stories with strong immigrant families, so I'm adding this one to my wish list.
