It is easy to find a book about Germany in World War 2. What happened after the war especially in the east is not as well known or detailed.
This book is suited to a young adult audience but a lot of adults will learn from it too. It is a story of contrasts between the west and east. I feel it could have been expanded in parts about this struggle without losing its audience. The ending was a little too abrupt in my opinion but it did close the book on a satisfactory way.
I enjoyed reading it and the author seems to have a great skill set for success. I just feel he needs to expand on his ideas and characters a little more.
