I love reading memoirs, so this book has been in my to-be-read pile for a while. Eleanor was living in America with her German parents. Her father is offered a good paying job in Germany, so they move back at the beginning of the war.
Eleanor's Story has received numerous accolades including a starred review in Booklist, International Reading Association's 2000 Children's Book Award, and is an ALA (YALSA) 2000 Best Book for Young People. If you're a teacher, be sure to check out the teacher's guide for it here.
10:03 p.m. Time to start book 3! I guess it is book 4 if you count the picture book.
I completely fell asleep around 2 a.m., book in hand and light on. I'll be napping and relaxing today though, and finishing this book, because I'm really enjoying it.
