the villagers did It was enjoyable to read about a time when people of all classes came together for once and hadshared experiences.We loved this story from the first page, it is a real page turner and there was no part of the book that was dull or uninteresting We haven t found any other recently written books that we have enjoyed anywhere near a much as these two Perhaps it was because we have a US copy but we were slightly suprised how many American words where used that wouldn t have been used by an English speaker candy, gasoline, fall, pants, quit, gotten to name a few I remember, but a small point that didn t in anyway spoil the enjoyment of a really wonderful story Highly recommended for any age #DOWNLOAD á The War I Finally Won ⛓ Ada and her younger brother, Jamie, now have a

not shy away from writing about Ada s anger and confusion and her supporting cast is fully realized and allowed story arcs of their own I was particularly touched by the portrayal of Lady Thornton, forced to live in close quarters with Ada and her new family, who has moments of utter ignorance and borderline cruelty yet grew into one of my favourite characters at the end There is a touch of Frances Hodgson Burnett about this duology not to be missed A wonderful addition to my favorite Middle Grade book ever The War That Saved My Life.You get to continue on with Ada and Jamie in this sequel They finally have a permanent home with the amazing Susan Great characters, an amazing story, and a fantastic audio book narrator Jayne Entwistle. This sequel starts right up where book 1 left off the 2 books make up 1 story I think it keeps getting better and better I do think it s important to read book 1 before reading book 2.I stayed up very late to finish reading All the way through it was a hard book to put down It s a page turner.I m considering adding it to my favorites shelf It s definitely a solid 5 star book for me How often is a sequel even better than the first book Here it is, and I also gave the first book 5 stars.I This sequel starts right up where book 1 left off the 2 books make up 1 story I think it keeps getting

considering adding it to my favorites shelf It s definitely a solid 5 star book for me How often is a sequel even better than the first book Here it is, and I also gave the first book 5 stars.It s a masterfully and beautifully told story It has an incredibly appealing voice in the main character narrator Ada and a writing style that I love.All the characters are brought vividly to life The plot and its pacing is perfection.I loved the newly introduced character Ruth and enjoyed the increased depth to many other characters, particularly the adults I continue to love Susan, a nearly perfect natural therapist and mother and appreciate how she s shown as flawed and not actually perfect I loved how one thing about her past was resolved.Ada is a great character to root for and I did This account shows a healing from trauma that is realistically shown, optimistic but not at all unrealistic The single page author s note at the back talks about two aspects of WWII that were a bit cryptically woven into the story and was a welcome addition It s a must read additional page This book is intense but always stays appropriate for middle grade readers and young adult readers despite the sometimes heavy subject matter, including WWII and its causalities and the realities of civilian life during the war, the Holocaust, child abuse and neglect, traumatic loss, adult sexual and romantic relationships far off the page , and other such things It might not sound like a children s book but it is, though unlike the first one I think it is also a young adult book, although it s one that I think can be enjoyed by all ages Both books are all ages appropriate and I think will appeal to some adults who don t normally read books for younger readers Highly recommended for readers who enjoy any of the following coming of age stories, stories about WWII especially as it impacted England and the Jews, horse lovers, cat lovers, family stories including atypical family stories, orphan stories, and stories where both child an adult characters grow and change in a realistic way.I loved so many parts in this book I found so many things meaningful One fun and creative thing I thoroughly enjoyed bottom half of page 294 second page in chapter 47 in the U.S hardcover edition was view spoiler I loved how Ada realized the black outs did not have to be gloomy black on the inside and how the kids painted the insides to match how the outside of the house s looked without the black outs on, bringing nature the outside light back into the house and making the rooms look
