John Marsden Writing Topic #149
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.
‘It’s the story of a person growing, learning, changing.’ Is this true of the book?**
Yes, in fact second to the love story, that’s what Where Rainbows End is all about. Rosie and Alex physically and emotionally grow up, learn and change as they grow up from children to young adults and middle aged parents. The book starts with them as children and ends with them as middle aged parents and accomplished adults, how could it not be a story of a person or people growing, learning and changing?
