    DOC ´ READER Willow Run Paperback ã PATRICIA REILLY GIFF Willow RunI live just a few miles from the real life Willow Run Plant so this book has special meaning for me just for that Add to that the fact that while I was reading it I learned that the plant had just been scheduled for demolition So this book has very special meaning to me even before reading itBut the book would be empty for me without depth and meaning I am a lover of great children's and young adult novels and a little after starting the book I asked myself How deep and meaningful can a children's book about World War II be if it's 'only' written from a civilian child's point of view? Well I was answered in a very good wayI listened to the unabridged audiobook narrated by Staci Snell Three times Patricia Reilly Giff makes the everyday life come alive through Meggie's eyes and thoughts and there are very brave t

    DOC ´ READER Willow Run Paperback ã PATRICIA REILLY GIFF Willow RunThis book is lovely I'm actually not surprised that it stood the test of time for me I'm not sure how accurate all of this information is but I think it's a very educational look at the climate of the United States during world war two It's simple enough for children to get the point across without being entirely graphic Even now I see how each character develops over the time that they have to stay in their residential area I'm not the target demographic for this so I can't really be upset at things being rushed or cliches getting thrown at me It's a nice story and that's gonna have to be enough for me

    DOC ´ READER Willow Run Paperback ã PATRICIA REILLY GIFF Willow RunIf it were an option I would rate Willow Run 35 instead A sweet and easy read that kids will enjoy but as a grown up there were areas it fell short for me I grew up with a used and further well loved paperback of Lily's Crossing Anytime I ran out of new books from the library I came back to it because it felt like home I had no idea there was a companion novel until I stumbled upon Willow Run a few weeks ago and was overjoyed But even as a now 21 year old having not read Lily's Crossing for some time I easily noticed that Willow Run

    DOC ´ READER Willow Run Paperback ã PATRICIA REILLY GIFF Willow RunAlright I've found another book I want for my class set room Now if I can only convince others to jump into this book too I don't know if I loved it because I love Giff if I loved the story or if it's because I watched that Canadian show Bomb Girls on Netflix It's a petite book that lightly shows how children's lives were interrupted during WWII but doesn't trivialize what they are going through It leaves plenty of room for discussions I'd say perfect to do with a 3rd or 4th grade
