it makes me glad to see YA books like this out there because I think they help the younger generations process things they might themselves be feeling or going through.

Formerly Camp Zoe and located in Eminence, MO, the beautiful Echo Bluff State Park is a relatively new park with lots to offer by way of accommodations and things to do. Nestled in the Ozarks near several springs, the waters of the Current River flow through this park, providing multiple areas for swimming and fishing, and it is a great place to stay if you are planning a float trip! There are even sightings of wild horses that roam the area!

There are so many books on WWII out there now, a trending topic that doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, so while I am getting little burnt out on it, personally, I wanted to give this one a shot because the story is set in Italy, which interested me, and I'm glad I did.
