Gr 5 Up—Because of COVID-19, Matthew is isolated with his mother and great-grandmother. He uncovers a riveting
story of his great-grandmother's past, a family secret hidden since the great Ukrainian famine in the 1930s. This
historical fiction mystery introduces readers to a forgotten piece of history while showing multigenerational
relationships at their finest.

This story is so well done - fantastic writing!

Marsh has taken serious subject matter (COVID pandemic and the Holodomor) that is difficult to explain to kids and reveals the subject matter layer by layer. This may be a difficult sell for readers who are put off by serious subjects and/or historical fiction. However, this story has a twist that will surprise them.

Excellent!

This was close to a 5-star read for me. It reminded me of [b:Number the Stars|47281|Number the Stars|Lois Lowry|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1630542426l/47281._SX50_.jpg|2677305] because it includes the story of a girl trying to save another girl from becoming a victim of a historical atrocity.

I listened to the audiobook, which was well done, but felt slow to me at times. I didn't like the Matthew chapters where he was fighting with his mom during the early days of the Covid pandemic. His angst about having his Switch taken away felt extraneous to the main story, which was the 1930s Soviet famine. But I did like Matthew's relationship with GG.

Maybe I missed something because I listened to the audiobook at 1.5x speed, but what is the meaning of the title in relation to the famine? It doesn't make sense to me.

A beautifully wrought tale of the Holomodor in Ukraine in the 1920s anchored by a grandson living through the pandemic-ness of 2020. Incredibly solid storytelling, strong characters, very well-structured.
