Thoughts: Not only does Gardner present wonderful life lessons for younger readers, she also brings to life a difficult time in history in a way that preteens can easily understand.  Lizzie and her "Guernsey Gang" are all great, memorable, well-rounded characters who really come to life on the page as they are forced to grow up faster than they should during a time of war.

Rating: 5 stars
