Originally posted at book has been liked to The Invention of Hugo Cabret and while I haven t read Brian Selznick s book I absolutely adored the film adaption The Girl in the Torch while it shares some similarities with Hugo was a fantastic and uniue novel This was a short book so it proved to be a uick read that I devoured in one sitting I haven t learned much of America s history but I knew bits and pieces about Ellis Island and so this was an interesting perspective onto the difficult process of getting into the US which hasn t changed much even today I ve been to Liberty Island once or twice before but it sure must be something else to stand from the crown looking at the sights below and around I was totally envious of Sarah at this point Not the other stuff like being alone and in the dark and scavenging for food from trash but that feeling of endlessness Sarah s character truly endures so much which is really sad for someone so young In the author s note Sharenow mentions that her country is not mentioned and this was to make the story universal I think he really succeeded with this intention because that feeling of wanting a new life or wanting to belong really resonated with me and should with other readers It also helped that there s such a diverse cast of characters in this book At the beginning of the twentieth century I can only imagine the various people from around the world who had arrived in the US looking for a better life Of course among these people you find many races and nationalities presented in The Girl in the Torch American Indian Chinese Black Irish Italian I really loved how she identifies with most of them despite difference in religion and backgroundThe author has managed to bring to life the many wonders and troubles found in this period of time by capturing the fabulous setting of New York in the 1900s I really enjoyed this strong and beautiful book that I m sure will have readers of all ages mesmerised with the story and relatable main character A great historical adventure that highlights the value of friendship family and never giving up Thank you so much to Megan at HarperCollins International for sending me a copy for review

READ The Girl in the Torch CHARACTERS The Girl in the Torch 107 READ Ë eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Robert Sharenow The Invention of Hugo Cabret meets True Grit in this heartfelt novel of resilience hope and discovering a family where you least expect it from award winning author Robert SharenowAt the dawn of the twentieth century thousands of immigrants are arriving in the promised land of New York City Twelve year old Sarah has always dreamed of America a land of freedom and possibility In her small village she stares at a p. I was sent an ARC of The Girl in the Torch but my review is entirely my own opinionRight from the beginning of this book I was pulled into Sarah s struggles and admired the way the author set up each conflict and could make every little problem feel like the end of the world for Sarah As a new American immigrant arriving around the turn of the century Sarah faces many varied challenges from losing her mother to choosing to jump from the boat to avoid deportation to scavenging for food and a place to sleep among the Statute of Liberty Through all of this Sarah remains resilient and hopeful which is part of what made this book so special Though Sarah undergoes horrible tragedies she is always trying to move forward and overcome her next challenge She doesn t dwell on things and remains optimistic and kind to those around her Moreso what made me admire Sarah s character is she was actually smart The author Robert Sharenow didn t have her ignore red flags and walk blindly into danger She could realize when something wasn t uite right stand up for herself and get out instead of allowing herself to be dragged into serious trouble This is balanced well with a bit of the meekness and naivety that one would expect of a young girl on her own The balance made her not only a realistic girl but one that young readers can really look up to The pacing of this book is slow at first but is in no short supply of tension Each problem that Sarah has to overcome is presented in a way that makes it hard to look away and each step builds upon itself The last third of the book runs through like a thrill ride as Sarah has to find a way to rescue her new found friends and family from getting sent to prison because of her while still find a way to stay in America It was delightful to see all the pieces come together by the end The epilogue definitely has a bit of sugary sweet cheesiness to it but the overall ending to the story was very delightful I can t think of a better word for it than that since I was just delighted reading it The book had a very diverse flavour to it since the story is of American immigrants Sarah rooms with Chinese people and a black couple befriends an Irish orphan is rescued by a half native man not to mention encounters a variety of cultures settling throughout New York City It definitely reminded me of something I would have read in school It would be perfect for young readers to discuss in a classroom setting as it does touch lightly on things like racism and life for immigrants to the USA I highly encourage teachers and librarians to pick this one up for their students It would also appeal to those who enjoy a historical tale as well All in all 355 stars A very sweet and diverse tale and one to savor
