Kimberly Brubaker Bradley: The War I Finally Won

F I was a little baby as if This stories continues just where The War That Saved My Life finished Having loved the first book so much I was surprised that the seuel was just as good if not njoyable we were so xcited to have the chance to read about these wonderful characters This story continues with the characters lives during WWII the book spans a couple of years we learn about characters from the last book and a new character Ruth joins the family Susan continues to be a wonderful mother and helps Ada with love and understanding to work through her problems We see heartache from the war and although parts are very hard to read aloud despite the sadness and loss the book is uplifting and positiveThere are some wonderful animal characters in this story and those who love horses will find so much njoy in this book We Warehouse Management enjoyed the details of WWII life the food rationing the meals they ate the war work the villagers did It wasnjoyable to read about a time when people of all classes came together for once and had shared I Little Slave experiencesWe loved this story from the first page it is a real page turner and there was no part of the book that was dull or uninteresting We haven t found any other recently written books that we havenjoyed anywhere near a much as these two Perhaps it was because we have a US copy but we were slightly suprised how many American words where used that wouldn t have been used by an English speaker candy gasoline fall pants uit gotten to name a few I remember but a small point that didn t in anyway spoil the The Stall (Pony In Training enjoyment of a really wonderful story Highly recommended for any age This seuel starts right up where book 1 left off the 2 books make up 1 story I think it keeps getting better and better I do think it s important to read book 1 before reading book 2I stayed up very late to finish reading All the way through it was a hard book to put down It s a page turnerI m considering adding it to my favorites shelf It s definitely a solid 5 star book for me How often is a seuelven better than the first book Here it is and I also gave the first book 5 starsIt s a masterfully and beautifully told story It has an incredibly appealing voice in the main character narrator Ada and a writing style that I loveAll the characters are brought vividly to life The plot and its pacing is perfectionI loved the newly introduced character Ruth and njoyed the increased depth to many other characters particularly the adults I continue to love Susan a nearly perfect natural therapist and mother and appreciate how she s shown as flawed and not actually perfect I loved how one thing about her past was resolvedAda is a great character to root for and I did This account shows a healing from trauma that is realistically shown optimistic but not at all unrealistic The single page author s note at the back talks about two aspects of WWII that were a bit cryptically woven into the story and was a welcome addition It s a must read additional page This book is intense but always stays appropriate for middle grade readers and young adult readers despite the sometimes heavy subject matter including WWII and its causalities and the realities of civilian life during the war the Holocaust child abuse and neglect traumatic loss adult sexual and romantic relationships far off the page and other such things It might not sound like a children s book but it is though unlike the first one I think it is also a young adult book although it s one that I think can be njoyed by all ages Both books are all ages appropriate and I think will appeal to some adults who don t normally read books for younger readers Highly recommended for readers who njoy any of the fol. S mother the formidable Lady Thorton However circumstances bring them in close proximity along with other unexpected characters Ada comes face to face with another German This time she isn’t sure what she should do How can she help the ones she loves and keep them safe   Ada’s first story The War that Saved My Life won a Newbery Honor the Schneider Family Book Award and the Josette Frank Award in addi.
