It s all right my dear I tell her It s all right I m dying too Elise Sontag lives with her mother father and younger brother in Iowa Her parents are from Germany and as the 1940s roll through the witch hunt for the Nazi s is under way No one said anything to one another We were tired We were stunned We were captives Thousands of Japan born Italian born and German born citizens are rounded up and their lives are stolen from them in US based internment camps There were concerts Movies It was like a pretend city Real but not real On the inside Elise meets Mariko a young American born Japanese girl and the two become fast friendsIn a world where everything familiar has been stolen both girls cling to their friendship to keep themselves aliveBut the war is drawing ever closer to home and soon the girls realize that America has concocted a scheme to get their citizens back by trading families like Elise s or Mariko s for Americans trapped behind borders Horrified the girls make plans to see each other again but as the years pass they only seem separatedIn modern times Elise knows that she is getting ever closer to dying but she decides that she will accomplish one last task to find her friend Mariko I can still hear the echos of her voice inside me despite what separated us and what kept us apart for good I can still feel her This was a complete emotional roller coaster and I was a basket case I am always extremely picky when it comes to war books I feel like far too many romanticize the times in order to turn a profit and thank goodness this book was not one of them I felt that Meissner handled the subject matter extremely well and that this perspective needs to be told So many war books focus on what it was like to fight for the country or the loss of love ones in the war so there s disappointingly few who go into the perspective of what it was like for a teenagerYoung Elise was extremely relateable and her naivety made her character feel real Not every teenager in Germany knew exactly what was happening and some like Elise only fully understood the horrors afterward The author developed Elise s character slowly and surely by the time I finished the book I was absolutely blown awayI also really enjoyed how the author interwove the older Elise s perspective someone who could feel the onset of Alzheimer s and decided to make one last journey while she could still rememberThere were several times that I teared up and had to put the book down to collect myself All in all I loved this book and definitely recommend it With thanks to
