Mourning Under the Bridge is about a girl who was an orphan. She had some other older orphans caring for her. Her favorite was a seventeen year-old girl named Jo. While Mourning was prowling around the Pullman s old, burned house, she is caught by a count named Damien. He takes her to the dungeon under the castle. While she is there, she saw Jo, who was to die. Orphans were killed or sent to a workhouse. When Count Damien did her blood test to see who her parents were, the results showed she was the last Pullman heiress. Damien was her brother. She now has to learn how to behave like a normal person after ten years on the street. Is she successful or should she have stayed on the streets?
The book had a very exciting topic, which I find unique. When I picked it out, I suspected it would be very interesting. It has a very exciting suspense in many of the chapters. I have definitely added it to my favorite books. Mourning Under the Bridge shows a real example of what it is like to be an orphan on the streets and how to deal with the outcome. I recommend it for 12+.
