    Great!

    It was fast reading, had lots of ups and downs, and had a happy ending. Great for middle-schoolers.

    Escape from Warsaw

    It was a dark night in Warsaw, Poland in 1942 when one of the darkest moments in the Balicki Family occurred. The kids Mom and Dad were both taken away by Nazi Storm Troopers. This makes the 3 children alone in a war-struck city. But one day, a boy named Jan, shows the children a long lost memory, a silver sword, the exact one they gave their Dad before he was taken away. This sends the children off to Switzerland in great hope of rescuing their parents. Encountering tough weather, harsh sickness, and grim soldiers, the only thing they focus on is finding their long lost parents. I really enjoyed this book because it had a good plot, great action, and a meaningful moral. I think the author created a good plot because it really gets the readers attention and this plot is great for an action book with the text luring the reader into the next chapter. I like the action because it really got you trembling with anxiety, even if you aren¿t actually in the book. Finally, I especially liked the moral because it gives out a good message on never giving up and always having determination.

    Who wouldn't like this book?

    Wow! This book left me breathless, and wordless. It kept me on the edge of my seet. It was definately a real page-turner. I couldn't put it down, and I ended up reading the whole book in 2 days! I am a 13 year old 8th grader. We read this book in school, but I finished in 2 days. I, along with my 30 classmates, enjoyed it so much! I think this book is perfect for kids/students/anyone the age of maybe 13 and up. It was a very good book, and I, should i say we, enjoyed reading every page of it!

    The family test

    This book is a wonderful middle school level book. It is a fairly easy read but still interesting for any age. It is about a family that gets torn apart by war. The father was sent away for not obeying Hitler. The mother was taken away by the Nazis in the middle of the night. The 3 children and a new friend named Jan are on a long journey from Warsaw to Switzerland. The father will meet them there. Will they make it through all the challenges? Will their father still be there? Read the book to find out.
