"Anya's War" by Andrea Alban

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Anya's War  by  Andrea Alban

Did you know that Jews fled to Shanghai during the Holocaust? This book is a treasure about just such a Jewish family. Anya Rosen is the main, curly-headed, character. Over a few days, she learns that the war may not only be happening in countries far away, but in her own home as well. When will peace come?
And have you ever wondered where the phrase "Oy vey" came from? Have you ever wanted to know what it was like to have a bomb drop practically on top of you and yet live? Or maybe you've wondered how exactly one takes parakeets for a walk. Find the answers to all these questions and more in "Anya's War".
