Ben Woodard

Author Ben Woodardabout this book: A short story written for reluctant readers, especially boys, that will also grab adult readers with its nonstop action and descriptive writing. Reviewers have used words such as tightly-wound, riveting, suspenseful, and thrilling to describe the story. It's based on an actual place in rural Kentucky that can still be visited today. I went to the site and researched the history of the bridge finding that a number of people have been killed while walking on the trestle. That made for a great basis for a story about boys and risk taking.

A synopsis: It's 1923 and two small town boys are looking for excitement. The younger persuades his cousin to walk across High Bridge in the middle of the night knowing that it is a single track trestle with no railings. And, at the time of the story, the world's highest railroad bridge. Danger follows them onto the track, and they have to make a deadly choice.

An adventure story with teen angst, friendship, and a dark side.
