I think I had a heart of stone as a kid, I pretty much never cried over things I probably should cry about, but instead wasted away my tears arguing with a typical older brother. And yeah, it's been done before countless times, but I'm in a list mode.
BOOKS THAT MADE ME CRY AS A KID (as in, before I was 12) which of course, brings back so much nostalgia and also brings back memories.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
- I just want to go duuuuuude and shake this book in the air. Who hasn't read it? I was totally not expecting the ending and then the tears were falling. Good thing I was reading this at home, not sitting in my seventh grade classroom.
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
- Seriously, does this need an explanation? It will always be the very first book that pops into my head when I think "tearjerker" and it's pretty much a childhood classic.
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
- *sniff* this is still one of my absolute favourite books, I read this when I was 12 but I still adore it and get sad when I remember certain things
.. And that's it. That's all I can think of, at the moment. I'd love to know what books made you cry as a kid :) And that's right, I actually didn't cry during Charlottes Web.
