Age: YA

Genre: Realistic fiction

Diversity: Ethnicity, religion

Illustrations: None

Personal Response: I thought this was an incredibly beautiful and moving story. As Zazoo, an adopted Vietnamese French teenager, slowly discovers the history of her village and her Grand Pierre during WWII she uncovers life changing secrets. At the same time Zazoo is dealing with the typical teenage problems associated with body image and first love. Sweet and sad at the same time this book made me cry more than once.

Curriculum: This would be a good book to use in conjunction with a lesson about WWII and the effect that it had on people living in Europe, specifically France that were not actively fighting the war.
