The World War II based book; "Goodnight Mister Tom" was to start off a great story for a perspective of a person living in the 1940's. The book was very clear for a reader to interpret the main ideas and dialogue and it therefore made it interesting to read. The bond between Tom Oakley and Willie was like no other and solved the issue between Willie and his mother's abuse to him. Never a dull moment! Would love for the upcoming 7th graders to have a chance to read this.
This book was appealing because is was based off of a true story. There was an intriguing plot but little suspense. Even though the different perspectives and flashbacks supported the story, sometimes it made it hard to follow. Jeanne needed to tie the parts of the story together as she skipped a lot of her life. Overall, this was a fascinating book.

So Anne is a typical 13 year old in the 40's. She goes into hiding. It's all a little bit cliche. We think Anne is a dramatic, insightful little girl. We do not think highly of this book. She is constantly writing about fighting with her boyfriend and her mum. She's a little depressed and she's always feeling sorry for her self. She's also very slefish!
