Rate this book
Clear rating
Another amazing piece of writing by Sepetys. This one a gripping World War II story. No words are wasted in the short chapters, and I was in the grip of this tale from beginning to end. If I have a small quibble, it would be that it was hard to keep ...more

An important novel for young adults about a very hot issue presently. Should be required reading in schools.

Red by Michael  Hall

Is Hall jumping on the "crayon" bandwagon? It's a popular theme right now. Overall this is a cute story with a positive message (we all are valuable and contribute to a better world. One quibble: it wasn't obvious to me at first what Olive represents ...more
