For me, this opportunity to write about Rumble came at a very ominous time. Most don’t know this, but I lost 2 VERY close people to me over the summer and one was a suicide. As I learned more about Ellen Hopkins’ main character in Rumble, Matthew Turner, I realized I could relate to a lot of what he was feeling. When we lose people close to us, it’s hard to not want to blame others and ourselves. But through time and support comes healing.
Check out the “Rumble” Trailer
Rumble, brought to us by The New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins, tells a story that covers faith, forgiveness, self discovery and healing.
Matthew Turner, the main character, has just been through a huge ordeal after his younger brother was bullied into suicide. We’re able to go on a journey and witness the pain, suffering and awakening that happens with Matthew. But when a horrific event plunges Matt into a dark, silent place, he hears a rumble . . . a rumble that wakes him up, calling everything heâ€™s ever disbelieved into question.
