    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

    I really wanted to like this book It highlights a piece of history about which I knew very little and the story seems like a good idea It was just such a slog and I did not find the writing compelling

    Rachel DeWoskin it is historical fiction Some day we will fly talks about a 15 year old girl who lived in Poland with her family and then one day her parents were performing and the German soldiers came and raided there building and took her mother so they had to go to china without her even though she didn't want to leave her behind My favorite part of the book is when she meets a Chinese boy at the school she goes to

    Yet another WWII historical setting that I knew little if anything about European Jewish refugees fled by train and boat to Shanghai China Struggling to stay alive they fought to keep their faith traditions alive and create a community there under Japanese occupation A beautiful wrenching story of multicultural friendship—really family—forged through the depravity of war and yearning for a home that may no longer exist

    Truly a heartbreaking account of a Jewish girl most of her family having fled to Shanghai the last place that will allow them entry I was not aware of Jews fleeing to Shanghai and while they didn't jump from the frying pan into the fire they jumped right next to the japanese Worth looking into actual accounts which are neatly documented at the end of the book

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. I don t know how to explain this book other than touching It truly is a very different type of story and experience that Lillian goes through The cultural and language I pact alone but then add I Your mother hovering Japanese soldiers poverty and having to step up at 15 to take care of your sister who clearly has some disabilitiesyou just can t not feel for her I loved how Lillian makes this effort to keep doing little things that remind her of home or her mom but then she also says I can t remember my mom s nameThe pacing is relatively slow but consistent For the most part the book doesn t drag but instead takes its time taking the reader on this long timelineThere s a little bit of heartbreak for me when I look back as a whole but thankfully nothing tore my heart out and left me to die which I find to be rare for WWII books but something I kinda need sometimesI can t exactly explain why but I really happy I own this book because I will absolutely reread it It s uite uniue from other WWII historical fictions that I ve read and I could definitely see my views of Lillian s father changing with each read

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
