The book Whirligig by Paul Fleischman reminded me of the book Restart by Gordan Korman. Both of these books tell a story of someone who loses their memory and wishes to change their past. Although Whirligig was very different from what I like to read in my spare time, I enjoyed the book immensely because of the contrast and surprising details that the author had dropped in just for the reader to stay engaged. As Brent travels, he meets people and who change his life and has experiences that leave him believing that there is hope for him to be a good person and live a productive life

I loved the organization of the chapters and how Brent's story and quest to memorialize Lea is intertwined with individual stories of each. I had many different feelings while reading it. In the very beginning of the book, I felt like it was.

Whirligig is a 1998 novel by Paul Fleischman

Whirligig is a 1998 novel by Paul Fleischman. Seventeen-year-old Brent Bishop has moved with his parents in Chicago, Illinois. He goes to a party in an attempt to fit in and become popular. He decides to talk to Brianna, a popular girl at the party.

An evening of humiliation at a high school classmate's party leave new-kid-in-town Brent Bishop attempting to commit suicide but killing a young woman named Lea, instead.

Lea's mother asks that Brent create four whirligigs in the four corners of the US as restitution. The bereaved mom hopes that the gesture will spread joy just as her daughter had. She gives Brent a Greyhound pass to make the journey.

This journey of discovery helps Brent find his best companion in himself. As his journey unfolds, the stories of the folks whose lives his creations have touched punctuate the narrative. In everyting we do, we touch somebody--and who knows how much?
It's worth thinking about, and Paul Fleischman's book will have you doing just that.
Stories intertwined with each other, not knowing it or each other. Impressions of other people creating evaluation internally. A real YA novel of self-examinations.
I use this book in my 9th grade English class. The basic premise is of a teen named Brent who, after being embarrassed at an after-school party, decides to drive drunk and then decides to commit suicide. However, when he stops steering the car, he accidentally hits and kills another driver, a girl who is only 19 and seemed to have a life full of promise. As restitution, her mother asks that Brent ride around the country on a bus and makes four whirligigs, one to put in each corner of the US, in honor of her daughter. This life-changing rite of passage leads Brent to discover many things about himself and many things about the nature of forgiveness and good. He learns to forgive himself and strive to undo the hurt that he has caused, replacing the ugliness with beauty. Unknown to Brent, his whirligigs bring happiness and joy to many others who stumble across them sometime later.

The story is quite untraditional in that Brent's story is chronological, but every other chapter is a flash-forward to someone who has been affected by one of his whirligigs. Though the sequence is a little confusing to teens, they quickly catch on and then become engaged with the story of someone so like them who seems to be struggling with the same problems with which they themselves are coping. My classes really like the story and learn to ask what makes a good person and how should we make decisions. In addition, the writing is beautiful, full of allusions and symbolism. It's a classic rite of passage book for teens today.
The book is intriguing and jumps rate into action, which I liked.
My son was reading this in 9th grade Language Arts; he discussed it at dinner and recommended I read it. I found the story to be insightful and thought provoking. A very good read.
