I love Ann Rinaldi All her books are just so fantastic This one really stands out for me because unlike the others there isn't really any romance in it which isn't good or bad just different Also it was just a great book Mrs Rinaldi captures the whole feeling of the time period beautifullyI also really liked the Glen Miller's Orchestra and the Shadow references 3

Summary Keep Smiling Through

A ten year old girl growing up during World War. I read this book on Independence Day because it was my turn to do the book review and I hadn't read anything new in the past weeks This book only took me two hours to read at the most I don't know for certain because I wasn't looking at the clock I didn't put it down onceWriting 55There is something about Ann Rinaldi's books that make them really good and hard to put down at least the two I've read so far but I'm pretty sure the others at least most of them are just as good The writing was great Superb deep POV good story structure vivid descriptions and engaging dialogue this book was everything it should have been and It didn't have any typos that I noticed either and was tastefully formatted such as I know about these things which isn't much but the inside was pleasing to the eye Well written all roundSetting 55The book is set in New Jersey in 1944 Of all the World War II books I've read about Americans this one seemed like it had the most accurate portrayal Perhaps that was because the author grew up during World War II I would assume since the author actually lived through World War II it's historically accurate; it certainly seemed so The main girl goes to a Catholic school and there is uite a bit of emphasis on the radio programs Kay Hennings' world seemed very realPlot 55I can't say much about the plot for fear of giving anything away What I can say is that it is good Really good It's exciting intriguingand if I say anything I'll be sure to blab somethingCharacters 55 They just all felt so real They were so rounded Kay had a mean stepmother Amazing Grace yet Amazing Grace was than just mean Unlike many evil stepmothers in stories and I could name a few Amazing Grace was a real person So was Kay's dad who mostly just wanted peace And money Martin one of Kay's brothers was wonderfully done Tom her other brother was barely in it but for the time he was he was a real person too And her sisters Mary and Elizabeth so very different yet the same as well They weren't cardboard characters or one sided but multi dimensional And Kay herself I'm really not sure what to say about her But I liked her A lotOne of the things I really liked about this book was how all of the loose ends were tied up; not one left hanging I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who can read
