I think that the book was interesting. I think this because it had to do with social studies. It told a lot about world war II. My favorite part was when Ellen saw her parent for the first time. I liked this part because she hadn?t seen her family for a long time and she was happy to see them again. I liked all the characters, especially Papa because he always found a way to get cover that Ellen wasn?t his daughter.
My recommendation for this book would be for 4th and 5th graders. This book was fairly easy for me as a 6th grader. There were some pretty tough words because this book took place back in World war II. I think this book is appealing to both boys and girls. I say for boys because boys would be most interested because it talks about World War II. It also would be appealing to girls because it has a lot of girl characters in it.
