Book Review: The People of Sparks
It starts as a miscommunication, a misunderstanding between people. The people divide along cultural lines. Each group begins to see the other group through the eyes of distrust. People view each other as enemies instead of fellow townspeople. They misjudge and misinterpret each other's words and actions. Fear and hurt abound. The misunderstanding escalates. One side slings insults at the other. The insulted group fires back. The conflict intensifies to the point of violence. What can stop it?
Want to know what happens next? Read the book. I read it to preview it for my 9 year old son. I think he's ready for the concepts about conflict presented in the book. There's no profanity or sexuality in it, but it does discuss war.
