During this journey Mary finds more than she bargains for. She discovers a new friend, new loves and a new hope.
Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
I loved this book. It was a bit predictable, however; I think it is a very well written piece of historical - fiction. I really enjoyed the love story, it is touching and subtle, perfect for teenage girls. The characters we have the opportunity to experience in this story are very 3 dimensional. They are full of color, in fact after I read this I saw parts of the characters in strangers on the street.
I recommend this book for teenage girls and young ladies that are still looking for their place in the world. I think that they will be able to relate to Mary. I also think this book does a great job of displaying what life was like around the Berlin wall. History buffs might also like reading this unique perspective of this historical event.
