Abstract

I am going to look into Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy and some of the history surrounding it as well as some of the reception from the public. Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy is a story that was published around 2004. The book is a typical coming of age story that is based around the real-life history that surrounds the forceful removal of the residents of Malaga Island off the coast of Maine around 1912. Many of the real-life residents are mentioned in the book even though it is historical fiction, including the Tripp and Easton families. I did find the book an interesting read that does provide a lot of interesting discussion topics, particularly regarding race and discrimination in New England during the time the story takes place, which is not a very well-known part of Maine’s history.
