This book. This book.
I read it in fifth grade, absolutely adored it, and finally got my mom to order me a copy.
I've read it once a year since then....and it's eight years later.
From the heroine's courage and compassion to her wonderful, charming hero, this book hits the nail on the head for ki...

I assure you this review will contain spoilers. Here's what I think about the book...
Yes, this is my all-time favorite book. I loved it so much the first time I read it that I read it three time until I had to return it to my school's library. I was 11 then. I just thought the characters where s...

Written like a journal this was a quick and easy read. After I picked it up I didn't put it down un...

I really enjoyed Anetka but often wondered while reading this was America really better than Sadowka, Poland? I felt the diary entries drew me closer to Babcia, Stefania and life in Poland more than America; so at times I found myself distracted.

A good one - a little more mature in content than your typical Dear America. It was neat to read about one so young though, coping with the new things in life what with marriage and raising children. Anetka has to grow up fast - a strong character! I enjoyed this a lot! :)

*Oops, sorry, I put Leo instead of Leon; I didn't realize that*
This is the best book I've ever read! Since I'm Polish, I really loved the history behind it, and I understood the words that Anetka was talking about. It is aout Anetka, who has to leave her Polish town with her brother and a former...

This is one of the "Dear America" series, an excellent group of books for intermediate readers. I've appreciated that good historical fiction is availa ble for younger readers. This is a good one in the series, esp. the relationship of Anetka and Leon. My only disagreement with the author is that...
