Book Recommendation: Forbidden City by William Bell

IMG_2900I read Forbidden City for my grade 9 English class and quite liked it. It’s an interesting story written by a Canadian author. This book was my first introduction to hearing about the Beijing massacre. It’s a great book if you’re interested in historical fiction or if you want to try something  you maybe wouldn’t normally read.

Forbidden City is about a seventeen year old boy, Alex, who joins his father on a trip to Beijing, China. Alex finds himself caught in the middle of the student protests of 1989 and relies on the students to help him escape.
