My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

This book didn’t start well for me just because I very confused at first. If I wasn’t so confused for a good chunk of pages, I would have rated this book 5 stars. I think it was the writing style that didn’t agree with me, but as more was revealed I understood better the style choices and grew to appreciate it. It’s definitely not easy saying you enjoyed a book that had torture, death, and nazis in it. I would say I didn’t necessarily enjoy those aspects, however, I really did enjoy the friendship that was at the centre of the story. As I learned more about Maddie and Julie, their friendship became #goals for sure.

In the back of my mind, I kept thinking about though this book is fictional the war actually happened, thousands upon thousands died. Soldiers were captured and tortured. That knowledge always makes these books about any real war are heart-hurting.

As always, thanks for reading!
