The Bridge

(Content includes discussion of suicide and depression)
Bill Konigsberg’s The Bridge is one of the most impactful and heartbreaking books you will read this year.
Aaron and Tillie are both depressed and end up at the George Washington Bridge at the same time, both with the idea that they are going to end their lives.   While they are nothing alike, they are in a very similar mental space.  The Bridge looks at their stories and all of the potential outcomes.  While the subject matter is incredibly hard to approach, Konigsberg does a wonderfully respectful job of showing the internal and external pressures teens often face.

Also, look for The Bridge to be developed as an Amazon Original Series in 2021.
