The book Shattered is an amazing, riveting book edited by Jennifer Armstrong. This book is full of short stories about different wars from the past. I personally thought that this book was informative and exceptionally witty.
My favorite character throughout the entire publication would have to be Jorgi from "War Is Swell". This boy and his sister, Katya, have had to go through many things children their age should not have to go through. These things include starvation and seeing death. This statement is saddening but valid. In fact, Jorgi is very intellectual. He lives better when the war is occurring. He knows what to say at the right time; it may not be the first time though. He may create a promise that isn't one hundred percent truthful, but you know it comes from his heart.
I can relate to Zack or "Whip" from "Golpe de Estado". This child moved from the United States to South America. It may have not been then tiniest move ever but he did it with his family. I have moved before from one state to another, and by the way, they were totally different from each other.
I obviously would recommend this extraordinary book. It is so moving and tells you what it is like for children during wars, and its frightening. People who would especially enjoy this daring, adventurous book would be people who like to read books that tell history and courageous humans.
This book, Shattered bravery and love for your country and others. I loved this book and will recommend it. Now, since I'm done reading it, I will try to find other stories about life changing battles.
