I am so glad that the author decided to write this book. My family tree goes back to Lithuania, but the book carriers are something of which I was not aware. I was glad to hear the story! Unfortunately, I didn’t get a strong connection to any of the characters, though I did admire their bravery. I also thought the story felt a little repetitive, and I felt a bit bored. I will definitely have to read more about this topic. ( )

I received an ARC of this book, due out October 2019.

Important historical (and current) topic about cultural identity tied to books and the power of the written word, set in the late 1800s when Russia banned Lithuanian books. When her parents are arrested and her home torched, Audra discovers that her parents were book smugglers, getting books into as many Lithuanian hands as possible in order to stand against the Cossacks. And yet, her parents, despite their mission, have never taught Audra to read, most likely trying to protect her.

I am, of course, adding this to my 4th/5th grade school library, but I didn't find this read as satisfying as I would have liked. There were too many times I simply could not "suspend disbelief" over how often the main characters were able to escape the Cossacks and survived harrowing conditions. Details were missing. Inconsistencies. Even the cover, while a general representation of the theme, does not depict any singular event in the book (no fault of the author there). And Audra teaches herself to read rather too quickly, begins writing stories, and has the same revelation about books repeatedly. ( )
