    The Upstairs Room ePUB ´ The Upstairs PDF or upstairs kindle, room free, The Upstairs pdf, The Upstairs RoomThe Upstairs Room MOBIA wonderful real life story of a young Jewish girl at the beginning of WWII. This story was based on the memories of 8yr old Annie who lives in Holland with her three sisters, her mother and father. This is a story of some wonderful people who took them in and hid them, risking their own lives and becoming as close to them as family. This felt like a realistic portrayal of the emotions a young girl would go through in such awful circumstances. It felt like this book was perhaps translated? I don't know, some parts didn't flow but we loved the story of their everyday life in hiding. Living on a farm they had slightly more freedom than some of the Dutch Jewish community in hiding but their circumstances were still overwhelmingly stifling for young people experiencing loss and living in fear. The end pages are very moving. I would l

It is a true story of two Jewish girls who lived with a Dutch family, secretly, for two years at the end of World War II. The story is told from the younger girl's perspective and is related simply without excessive emotion or excessive explanations. Wi

    The Upstairs Room ePUB ´ The Upstairs PDF or upstairs kindle, room free, The Upstairs pdf, The Upstairs RoomThe Upstairs Room MOBIThis is the author’s own story—-written for her children—-of what it was like to live in a single room for three years, hiding from the Nazis, and losing precious years of childhood. She was 8 years old when she went into hiding along with her teenage sister. Because she lived this story and is a fine writer, Johanna Reiss does an outstanding job of depicting what a life in hiding is like for a child, especially one who doesn’t quite understand what is at s

    The Upstairs Room ePUB ´ The Upstairs PDF or upstairs kindle, room free, The Upstairs pdf, The Upstairs RoomThe Upstairs Room MOBII think because I have read many books about WWII--fiction and non-fiction alike, this book for me pales in comparison to them. It is definitely an easy read, and of course the subject matter is interesting, but I felt like nothing really happened. The author didn't adequately convey the despair those poor Jews must have felt at having to hide for so long. If the characters were more endearing, and their development stronger, I would have liked this book a lot more.

It's the author's true story and made very real through her writing. I loved the Postscript as the author shared her experience as an adult, taking her daughters back to Holland to see the house where she hid,

I could not for the life of me remember the title, so I spent about an hour searching things I remembered from it all over the internet, and behold: the power of the 21st century brought this book back to me. I was as emotionally moved by it now as when I read it at age 10. But now I see the clever writing, how the sentence structure changes as the main character goes

    The Upstairs Room ePUB ´ The Upstairs PDF or upstairs kindle, room free, The Upstairs pdf, The Upstairs RoomThe Upstairs Room MOBII was disappointed in this Newbery Honor book. Although it was interesting to get the perspective of a child and her experience & understanding (or lack thereof) of the situation she was in, the swearing really bothered me and made it a book I wouldn’t recommend to children or keep on my shelf. I don’t know many kids who would stick with this story anyway; it was rather boring - which accurately reflected the author’s experience - but even the parts that should have been suspenseful felt flat and detached. It was a basic survival story devoid
