I have heard a lot of great things about this book and I cannot wait to read it. It definitely sounds like a heart-wrenching, emotional read and describes events I can’t even imagine.
What about you – what books are you excited for?

  1. I’m looking forward to reading this one too!

  2. Wow. This one sounds pretty emotional. It’s definitely worth checking out though. I haven’t read too many YA books set during WWII. What about you?

  3. Jacmom: Do you have a blog? You are always such a fantastic commenter I want to return the favor but I can’t find one for you…

    Ginger: I don’t know if I have ever read any YA set in WWII. This sounds like a great one to start with though!

  4. This is going to be such a sobfest!!! Get your tissues ready.

  5. Oooh I’ve seen this one around, and I added it to my TBR pile this morning…excellent pick, Tara! :)

  6. Aghh, this one is going to tear me apart, I can just tell.

  7. I’m going to have a happy book close by for whenever I finish this one. I can’t read two sad books in a row! It hurts my heart, and I can tell this one is going to be emotional.

    Great pick :)
