    Default What is the first book that ever made you cry?

    This is a question I love asking In true teacher fashion, this was our discussion question at our last Happy Hour!!


    What was the first book that made you cry? (or maybe gave you an extreme emotional reaction?)


    My first was in 6th grade--- Where the Red Fern Grows.

    a book has never made me cry. except ones that were thrown at my head, which never happened. or maybe it did I don't know. I'm sure someone has thrown a book at my head. My brother threw ice at my head and i bled. and a diving stick and I had to get stitches. and this bully hit me really hard with a seatbelt when I was 8 and when I cried he went why are you crying it didn't hurt.oh and I was dropped on my head a few times. But no a book has never made me cry by reading
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    The Velveteen Rabbit was the first I remember (later on, after reading the Childcraft Encyclopedia, I determined that I was suffering from scarlet fever, as the boy in the story was and all my nearest and dearest friends would have to be destroyed).

    A Lantern In Her Hand by Bess Streeter Aldridge was the first kind of grown up book I recall really crying over - Grade 7.

    The Lorax, back when I was in elementary school. It still makes me cry now, come to think of it...

    I can't remember. I always fought the tears until my first pregnancy and between being super squishy and having crazy hormones, it was no use. After that did not kill or traumatize me, I haven't bothered to fight it. Books that don't make me cry are almost the exception.

    The last book to make me cry was Vampire Interrupted which is just a silly paranormal romance novel, but there was a long lost mom reunited with her son after hundreds of years
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I think I was 16 when I read it for the first time.

    Most recently, The Kite Runner. That was last week.

    Island by Aldous Huxley, if I remember correctly. I don't think that was until college.
