Whirligig is a book by Paul Fleischman that narrates how your actions, positive or negative, can affect others.
In the book, a boy named Brent Bishop got into a car crash and unknowingly killed a girl named Lea Zamora. Lea's family asks Brent to place whirligigs of Lea in the four corners of the U.S. and Brent says yes.
The story displays how Brent changes, as he looses his feeling of isolation and he gains a sense of his own worth.
Paul Fleischman said the story was inspired by the myth of Hercules, which is how he got the idea of redeeming oneself.
These two ideas later came together to create Whirligig.
Years later, Paul was hiking and overheard a women talking about a relative who'd died in a car crash because of a drunk driver.
Fleischman grew up in Santa Monica, California with his father, Sid. His father greatly influenced his passion for writing and both Paul and Sid made great achievements in writing.
Whirligig is a book with a great message and it should be read by everyone.
