  • I’ve used Theresa Breslin’s ‘Divided City’ during the last two courses and I’m very happy to have chosen it as a reading for my students. The book is thrilling and connects with my students in many ways. The main characters are teenagers like them, who experience similar problems as they do during this period of life.

    The book deals with topics that are perfect for class analysis and discussion: religious conflict, teenage problems, football rivalry, immigration and refugees, family issues, etc. The book is structured in short chapters, easy to read and with a suitable level of difficulty for students who have English as a second language. If you are looking for a good reading for your class, don’t hesitate, go for ‘Divided City’ and get ready to enjoy a great book.
