Tuesday Book Review on Wednesday

Five-star review of Soon by Morris Gleitzman 

Felix is older and less naïve than in the earlier books in this series, but he still doesn’t quite know how to read people or situations, which often makes him charming in the midst of terrible actions by some people and keeps his voice fresh. In this fifth book in the series, WWII has ended, and the Nazis are defeated. Still, life is difficult, even dangerous. The people Felix meets many people in this story, a few more important in his life than others. He also ‘adopts’ a baby and tries to take it to Ukraine, since he believes the baby is Ukrainian. The entire series should be required reading for preteens, because they present an awful part of human history in terms kids can comprehend.
