I gave this a three because I feel that it may have been too tidily written such as to end the way it did Regardless this is a book that I would let my own daughter read somedayMay be spoilers you have been warned The issues tackled here go on beyond the page and maybe it is the pessimist part of me thinking that the darkness in this book should not have been dulled so simply But I like that it was still hopeful a flame in a dark room for anyone who needs itThis is a shameful chapter in US history that is not talked about too often In this is the story of a young girl a family and a young idealist facing struggles that are still universal up to this dayunfortunately It is a sad fact that history repeats itself This book preserves the memory of a war and its effects so as to prepare us for its reoccurrence If even only for that this book should be read by Today it has reminded me to look into my conscience not at the color of another's skin or of another's flag It gives a human face to anyone I might think my enemy Something worth reflecting on when the time comes
