Someday We Will Fly

READ Someday We Will Fly FREE READ À Someday We Will Fly Warsaw Poland The year is 1940 and Lillia is 15 when her mother Alenka disappears and her father flees with Lillia and her younger sister Naomi to Shanghai one of the few places that will accept Jews without visas There they struggle to make a life; they have no money there is little work no decent place to live a culture that doesn't under. Powerful historical fiction The fact that I just read an excellent adult novel that was about this exact same topic and time period may have taken my appreciation of it from love to like however if you want an outstanding adult story of Jewish refugees in Shanghai during WWII definitely read The Song of the Jade Lily by Kirsty ManningETA 2020 Sydney Taylor Award Young Adult The Sydney Taylor Book Award is presented annually to outstanding books for children and teens that authentically portray the Jewish experience

READ Someday We Will Fly FREE READ À Someday We Will Fly Stand them And always the worry about Alenka How will she find them Is she still alive Meanwhile Lillia is growing up trying to care for Naomi whose development is frighteningly slow in part from malnourishment Lillia finds an outlet for her artistic talent by making puppets remembering the happy days in Warsaw when they were circus perform. Trigger warnings war death Holocaust racism death of a loved one antisemitism serious illness grooming I desperately wanted to love this because like it s a World War II story that s very different to what we usually get in YA Yes it s about a Jewish girl fleeing Poland and the Holocaust with her family but this time they flee to China A China that s already been occupied by Japan for several years But ultimately this was just a little too bleak for my liking I mean I m not saying that I expected a WWII story about a Jewish girl to be full of hope and happy things But between the extreme poverty and the way the Japanese soldiers treat the Chinese population and the creepy middle section where the protagonist ends up essentially dancing at a sex club and being groomed by a middle aged man who s high up in the Japanese military I justoof Maybe if I d read it in any other year in my lifetime I would have felt differently But in 2020 this was justa little too real for me Even the sections that should have brought some degree of lightheartedness like going to Girl Guides or making friends were rough because Lillia is trying to fit in with the rich girls from her school when in reality she s like eating dirt to survive So yeah I was interested to read it But it was just bleak
