Product Details


“War propels a boy from the privileged side of town across the bridge to the enemy, where he learns the real causes of the war and about his own history …. A suspenseful and entertaining debut.” – Kirkus Reviews

“This grim first novel, set on a not-so-distant future Earth …. packs a significant emotional wallop …. Higgins works hard to expose the religious and racial bigotry lurking behind so many military conflicts, and she is adept at showing that, frequently, neither side is without blame.” - Publishers Weekly

“…. Readers will easily see themselves in Nik, a young man unsure of his place and uncertain of who is in the right. The popularity of dystopias will ensure that this story has appeal, and it will also make readers think.” - School Library Journal

“…. truly an engrossing and compelling story …. Higgins’ depiction of a world gone mad on war and drunk on power and fear is on par with the best that dystopian literature has to offer …. The Bridge surpasses its contemporaries as it delves into areas rarely explored so convincingly by others in the genre ….” - CM Magazine
