My book is The Other Side of the Bridge by Camron Wright. It takes place in San Francisco, California for Katie Connelly and for David Riley lives in Jamesburg, New Jersey. It takes place in the 21st century in the year of 2012.
David lives in New Jersey with his family. On a sunny day, Dave and his family was going on a ride and then out of nowhere a boulder slammed into their car. In the book it says, “The boulder slammed onto the road so suddenly…” The author was probably trying to make you feel like nothing bad was going to happen and then it did. When David decided to drive across the country to the Golden State Bridge, the weather was pretty good on the way there. The book says, “…storm stayed distant, as if it understood that the determined man on the motorcycle needed to get past and get on his way.” The weather was acting like it needs to be good so David can get to the bridge by the 4th of July.
Katie was happily engaged and so she decided not to go visit her fiance one weekend and instead go and study for graduation. On the day she was going to study, a water pipe broke in part of the campus that she was going to. Then, she decided to go visit her fiance and caught him sleeping with another lady. Without the water pipe breaking, she would never catch her fiance doing that and she would probably be married to him. The setting had a big effect on her life. Katie said in the book, “I’m fascinated by circumstance-the way insignificant events catapult our lives into strange directions.
