This book is great. I really enjoyed the storytelling, newspaper articles and complexities of the style. Having the main character be in the 1930s hearing stories about the '10s was a cool way to incorporate two different historical periods without them being confusing. There was some predictability in the middle of the book, but in a good way that kept you hoping for a happy ending. There was a bam! of emotion in part of the end that took me by surprise, as well as some predictable sad parts.

I loved the characters in this book and am imagining what might have happened to them later in their lives.

This book is also great because it feels like a school book, but is also really good. It seems like a school book to me because I can imagine so many things that could be talked about and explored while going through this book, maybe at about middle school level. I think I would have liked this as a school book when I was a kid.
