I am reading The Bridge Home by Padma Venkatraman. This book is all about two kids named Rukku and Viji who ran away from the mother and their father. They ran away because their father was hurting them.
They run away into the city and meet these two boys named Arul and Muthu. They are both homeless. Viji and Rukku live with them by a bridge.
But, one day a trash man chases them and threatened to kill them. They run away to a grave yard and live there.
Things started to get very bad. Rukku and Muthu both got sick. They went to a church to pray and that is when they met these very nice people who offer a home for homeless kids. They don’t trust the people but still take their business card.
One day Rukku and Muthu got too sick. So Viji and Arul went to the house with the nice lady called Celina Aunty. Rukku and Muthu got rushed to the hospital to only find they both got a very bad disease called pneumonia and Rukku also had malaria.
A few days later Muthu got out of the hospital and Rukku died. This made Viji very sad that she was all alone except for Arul and Muthu.
Read the book The Bridge Home by Padma Venkatraman to find out what happens next.
