Overview

The Army of Orphans: The Beginning by F. B. Veneziano

Their mother was killed in an auto accident. Their father became an abusive drunk who abandoned them. The state put them in an orphanage where their abuse continued.
This is an all too common story in some Eastern European countries today. Social orphans deserted by their parents. Abused, discarded, and living on the streets while battles rage around them.
But, these orphans survive and escape the orphanage along with their close friends. Not to live on the streets, but to create a home for themselves; a home worth protecting. With their "family" of fellow orphans, they will fight for the freedom of their country.

“The Army of Orphans” is a YA book that follows the lives of three siblings. Although, it’s set 30 years in the future in Eastern Europe, it could be now and that makes it very relevant to read. After their mother dies, their father falls into drinking and rage. This eventually leads to the two boys Alex and Anton being sent to an orphanage, while the oldest Irina finds her own way. Alex discovers the stories he’s heard about the orphanage to be true. At the same time a revolution is happening outside the walls of this institution that pulls him and others into it. The characters are so well-written I felt every emotion reading this story. The strength of Alex is what makes this book hard to put down. He’s a young adult who has to leave his childhood behind as he survives in a world that is changing daily. I found myself falling in love with these children and then admiring their bravery. I’m looking forward to reading the next book “Retaking Pervaiske” and more from this author. I highly recommend this book not only for young adults, but for adults, too.
