By: Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

Historical Fiction

When war breaks out, Ada moves to the countryside with her younger brother and their guardian into a small cottage owned by the bossy Lady Thornton.

Luckily, Lady Thornton’s got beautiful horses for everyone to ride. Everyone except Ruth. Because she’s German.

This book was just OK

I loved this book!

This book made me think more about being Jewish.

This is the sequel to the war that saved my life (another amazing book), and you get to learn more about Ada and Jamie. It's an amazing way to learn about the Holocaust through the perspective of a young girl. This book also taught me about the importance of staying true to yourself and your beliefs.

So good!

I would read more books by this author.

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

I’ve read the first and second book, they were some of my favorites about World War II. I didn’t really have an interest in reading books about the war at first, but these changed my mind. I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about World War II.

Loved this book! If you are interested in world war two you will love this book. If you are considering this book make sure to check out the first book the war that saved my life. It's a lot better if you read the first book first.

This book is really good, but if you select it I’d suggest waiting to read it and reading it's prequel first.

So Good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is an amazing book! Like someone else said, this book can stand alone, but I definately would recomend reading the first book first. (the first book doesn't have any jewish content, so I don't think it will be a choice for PJOW)

This is an Amazing Must-Read!

This work of historical fiction is set in England during WWII. Eleven-year-old Ada struggles to figure out how she can help with the war efforts and protect her younger brother. She also meets Ruth, a Jewish girl from Germany, and their relationship is, well... complicated. If you enjoy reading about characters with exciting lives and big emotions, pick up this book!!

(One last note: This is a sequel to The War That Saved My Life. This book can stand alone, but personally I recommend reading them in order.)
