- Hard Creek Bridge: a short story

Hard Creek Bridge is a great story. The winning element that kept me hooked was the hat Slim's grandfather gave him - a great symbol of family sentiment that kept the story moving along and kept us wanting Slim to succeed. Will look for more from this author.

I was a little skeptical at first, but the story won me over and I think Nesbit's representation of the thoughts and feelings of a 14-year old were pretty honest and accurate. It was an easy enough read, with good plot placing, but suffered from some irritating word confusions (peddle vs. pedal, psyche vs. psych). Loved the ending.
