This book was truly amazing and haunting at the same time. It took place during the Russian Revolution following the lives of the five Romanov children, Olga, Tatianna, Maria, Anastasia, and Alexei.

This book was so sad, and, well, heart-wrenching. The characters seemed so real, probably because they were, and you knew that the story was true. There were pictures of the family in the back of the book, which was both awful and nice at the same time.

It was very easy to connect to the siblings, especially the girls. They had animals they adored, family they loved, and yearned for life to be how it was before the revolution. They watched countlesss people die. At the beggining of the book and the revolution, they more of watched the misery and heard about it then be greatly affected by it. They tried to help the people and shorten the war. Then their father was abdictataed, and their life suddenly got worse, until the end, ehen they DIED.

This book just goes to show you that real life isn't a happy ever after.

This is an amazing read, and you should get it if you love history.
