Booklist - 06/01/2022 What does it mean to have courage? Nielsen (Words on Fire, 2019) examines this question through the stories of five tweens in the midst of WWI, offering varied perspectives and showing children caught on each side of the war. There is Felix, a Jewish boy in Austria-Hungary whose family must find a way to survive; Kara in Great Britain, volunteering with the Red Cross; Juliette in France, who is trying to save her imprisoned father; Dimitri, a Russian soldier; and Elsa, a girl from Germany. Over the course of five years, their lives will become interconnected in ways they never thought possible. Nielsen doesn't shy away from the terrors of war and writes about survival in an accessible way for young readers. While the main characters may suffer loss, ultimately their stories are of hope and having the courage to stand up for what you believe is right, even in the face of the most dire circumstances. A riveting historical tale. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
