Kirsten: Have you read The Travel? I just finished it yesterday.

Renee: No, but I’ve wanted to. Is it good?

Kirsten: it is! But it’s quite grim.

Renee: How so?

Kirsten: In the story, a mother and her son were on a trip when they were caught by a group of crazy people. They were kept in a small dark room and treated terribly. It really broke my heart to read that the mother chose to stay and fight with the bad guys. She was almost killed when trying to help her son run away.

Renee: So it’s this grim from the first page to the end?

Kirsten: Yes, but there’s still a bright side in it. You get to see how strong parents can be when they want to keep their children from being hurt.

Renee: I see. I’m surely going to borrow it from the library.

Kirsten: Then you must hurry. When I borrowed it last Friday, they told me that many people were waiting to read it!
