John Marsden Writing Topic #139

From Writing Topic #131 until Writing Topic #149 are “based on a book”. The book I have chosen to focus on is Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern.

How much is this book a story of loss of innocence?**

Where Rainbows End is a story of loss of innocence over time. The novel spans almost fifty years from when Alex and Rosie are children to when they hit middle age. The loss of innocence comes from both of them growing up and learning that life doesn’t turn out like they planned or wanted.
