This book was terrific! I read in one night, every page was great. It really gave me a full perspective on how the war really was back then, especially from Lisa Platt's point of view. She saw the war probably the same way I would have seen it, too.
I give this book a four star rating because it is fascinating and shows how strong a family can be. The Platt family moves from Germany to America to escape from the Nazis war. The story is told by the middle child, Lisa. She wants to get away from the war and stop hearing about it! One night the family is sitting in their living room, when on the radio a voice is saying that the war has spread to America and become a world war! Lisa meets a neighbor who played with her once and his father beat him. He then went to help the soldiers fight the war. Papa decides to move the family to California and try to get farther from the war. While there, Lisa finds new friends: Jannie, Sheila, and Louise, Madame K is the teacher of an advanced dance class. She offered Lisa to be in her class and Lisa accepted! Lisa¿s sister, Ruth met a friend named Will. Will drove Lisa to Hollywood because she wants to be famous someday and they became good friends after that. Lisa got a job at a bakery shop, in town, to help pay for her dance lessons. Papa bought Ruth a violin because she liked music. Papa also bought a brand new car to drive the family to all of their errands, and a sewing machine for Lisa to help him sew collars for his job. Ruth met a pilot named Peter and got engaged to him. The family got better at paying their bills, buying food, and clothing. If you¿re looking for a book about war and poverty, this book is for you! To find a story full of imagination and excitement, this is your choice! This book is all of the above and more! Silver Days by Sonia Levitin, go check it out!
