First sentence: If I'd known what was coming that morning, I'd have done things differently. I certainly wouldn't have fought with my mother.

Premise/plot: Jennifer Nielsen's newest book is set in Poland during the Second World War. It is a fictionalized account inspired by a real teenager, Lidia Zakrzewski, a Resistance fighter. Lidia, our heroine, is outraged when Poland falls and the Nazis invade. Everything changes dramatically in such a short amount of time. Her home life--which had some tension before with a difficult mother--becomes truly dramatic. Still, she keeps on keeping on--resisting, persisting, doing anything and everything to defy the new regime. "Simple" things like going to an illegal school so she can continue her education. More difficult things like becoming a messenger--running messages for those in the resistance--before ultimately becoming a fighter herself. This is a brutal coming of age story set in a harsh environment.

My thoughts: I have never been disappointed by Jennifer A. Nielsen. Still holds true with her newest book. I found this one engaging. I read it quickly--one or two sittings--because I just got caught up in the story. It was a rough read as many war books are. But it was a GREAT read. Definitely recommended.

It's here. It's finally here. I wanted to read Rescue for months, but someone transferred it before I could. Months later, I transferred it back to a library I visited so I could pick it up, and then I glanced at the blurb, which made it seem like an intriguing and enjoyable story about secret codes set in WWII. I liked this one.

It starts with the first person I see, Meg, fleeing from her home and father after the Germans invaded it, and all that's left of him are some encrypted notes. It may seem like all hope is lost for her, but that's not what happens. Meg tries to find her father using her knowledge of codes to solve the mysteries to find her father. This work is one of the slower historical novels I've read, but it was still satisfying much like Words on Fire, even though it's like a younger version of Elizabeth Wein's The Enigma Game. I liked Meg as a character because of her realism since she doesn't get everything right and it takes time for her to succeed. I predicted a plot twist, which tells me I might not be the right audience and I already saw one of the messages in the code long before Meg found it out. However, I didn't see the second message. The pacing is right for me as the slower parts never bored me and the fast-paced conclusion was enthraling. I'd recommend this one for anyone who has a taste in historical/war fiction.

A nicely done young adult novel about a teenage girl who over time fights against the Nazis in her home town (Warsaw, Poland) during World War Two. Her role with the resistance increases along with her bravery as her story builds. I love that the novel is based on a real girl and there are photos the author places of her and her family at the end of the novel. I can't wait to share the book with my junior high aged granddaughter. The are many lessens to be learned in this one.
