 Someone Named Eva

This was one of the best books i have ever read. I read this book over and over again and am still reading it more times. So far I have read it 9 times and I have only had it for a month. I would recommend this book to anyone around the age of 10 and up. This book reminds me that it is important to remember who you are and not lose yourself being the person everyone else wants you to be. It inspired me that even when things were really bad for Milada that she continued to hope that she will go back to her family. This story brings a sudden shot of hope that everything will be alright. In a way besides the hardships and sad events Milada has gone through it makes me happy and hopeful. I love this book and I believe it could change your perspective on the world as it did me. I cant wait to read it a 10th time!

 Not for 4th Graders

While this book may be good reading for middle school students, I do not believe the subject matter is appropriate for 4th graders. Its inclusion in the Florida Battle of the Books list for 9- and 10-year-olds is unfortunate. My daughter is upset at the prospect of children being ripped from their parents arms, being publicly stripped and beaten, and dying in gas chambers or incinerators. While the tragic reality is that Hitler's regime was guilty of such atrocities, my 9-year-old daughter really doesn't need to hear about it quite yet.

I believe there are several 2010-11 Battle books that are not suitable for the target age group, including one about a girl tortured to insanity and crippled, and another about a ghost who smiles evilly while she murders her enemies. Could we lighten things up a little, folks?
