For an audience of young adults, this is the first book of a series; a captivating piece of fantasy and historical fiction about Nic, a young slave whose chief concern is to keep his sister safe, who is forced to enter a sealed mine to retrieve Cesar’s treasures but, due to difficulties beyond his control that involve a menacing griffin and a collapsing cave, finds himself escaping with, rather than returning with, Cesar’s coveted bulla. We read on in hopes that Nic avoids recapture and figures out who to trust and how to use his newly discovered powers to keep his sister . . . and Rome, safe. (Well-read by MacLeod Andrews)… (mere)

First sentence: If I'd known what was coming that morning, I'd have done things differently. I certainly wouldn't have fought with my mother.

Premise/plot: Jennifer Nielsen's newest book is set in Poland during the Second World War. It is a fictionalized account inspired by a real teenager, Lidia Zakrzewski, a Resistance fighter. Lidia, our heroine, is outraged when Poland falls and the Nazis invade. Everything changes dramatically in such a short amount of time. Her home life--which had some tension before with a difficult mother--becomes truly dramatic. Still, she keeps on keeping on--resisting, persisting, doing anything and everything to defy the new regime. "Simple" things like going to an illegal school so she can continue her education. More difficult things like becoming a messenger--running messages for those in the resistance--before ultimately becoming a fighter herself. This is a brutal coming of age story set in a harsh environment.

My thoughts: I have never been disappointed by Jennifer A. Nielsen. Still holds true with her newest book. I found this one engaging. I read it quickly--one or two sittings--because I just got caught up in the story. It was a rough read as many war books are. But it was a GREAT read. Definitely recommended.

It's here. It's finally here. I wanted to read Rescue for months, but someone transferred it before I could. Months later, I transferred it back to a library I visited so I could pick it up, and then I glanced at the blurb, which made it seem like an intriguing and enjoyable story about secret codes set in WWII. I liked this one.

It starts with the first person I see, Meg, fleeing from her home and father after the Germans invaded it, and all that's left of him are some encrypted notes. It may seem like all hope is lost for her, but that's not what happens. Meg tries to find her father using her knowledge of codes to solve the mysteries to find her father. This work is one of the slower historical novels I've read, but it was still satisfying much like Words on Fire, even though it's like a younger version of Elizabeth Wein's The Enigma Game. I liked Meg as a character because of her realism since she doesn't get everything right and it takes time for her to succeed. I predicted a plot twist, which tells me I might not be the right audience and I already saw one of the messages in the code long before Meg found it out. However, I didn't see the second message. The pacing is right for me as the slower parts never bored me and the fast-paced conclusion was enthraling. I'd recommend this one for anyone who has a taste in historical/war fiction.
