Lily's Crossing Book review
Lily's crossing tells younger readers, such as myself, more about how kids closer to our age lived during world war II. We always hear about the people who fought for the country, the people who left everything to help, but what about the people that they left. This book shows you just that, these kids couldn't do anything to help, but their relatives could, and they lost those people.In the story three kids face challenges due to the war ,Lily, Albert, and Margaret, they all have very different stories, but they all show the same issue. These kids were left helpless, hopeless, they never knew if their family was going to come back, they never knew if their own lives were in jeopardy. They just never knew. This book shows the other side ,not the heros, not the enemies, but the kids who struggled and didn’t know how to handle what was happening. These kids families were all over the world, but were not allowed to know where. Imagine that, your father, brother, uncle, grandfather they were somewhere and that was all you knew (maybe you didn't even know that)that was what these young children were dealing with. I highly recommend this book for all ages it shows the blind side of world war II that is not shown as much as it should.
