DNB: The War That Saved My Life

Hello lovely readers! 😀

I know that I haven’t done a DNB in awhile, and I apologize.  I currently have three books that I would like to review, plus a “What I’m Reading” post, so I’m going to be opsting quite a lot of book content!

Name: The War That Saved My Life

Author:  Kimberly Brudbaker Bradley

Length: 320 Pages

Genre:  Middle Grade Fiction

Summary: Nine-year-old Ada has never left her one-room apartment. Her mother is too humiliated by Ada’s twisted foot to let her outside. So when her little brother Jamie is shipped out of London to escape the war, Ada doesn’t waste a minute—she sneaks out to join him.  So begins a new adventure of Ada, and for Susan Smith, the woman who is forced to take the two kids in. As Ada teaches herself to ride a pony, learns to read, and watches for German spies, she begins to trust Susan—and Susan begins to love Ada and Jamie. But in the end, will their bond be enough to hold them together through wartime? Or will Ada and her brother fall back into the cruel hands of their mother?


This book was extremely good, and definetly one of my favorites!  I usually don’t read historical fiction, so I’m suprised that I loved this book.  This kept me on my seat until the end, and I loved learning about life in World War II!

Right from the start, The War That Saved My Life caught my atention.  The cover, the summary, and even the first page sounded really interesting.  Although there were many sad moments, (that almost made me want to throw the book across the room,) it was very touching and I feel that this book is going to stay in my head for awhile.

I really liked Bradley’s way of writing.  It sounded like a ten-year old girl was really narrarating this.  The word choices and the sentence structure are simple yet stunning.  🙂

Final Rating:


I would definetly recommend this book to anybody!

I just started another blog called The Best Blog Buzz!  Please check it out!
