I have been to Omaha Beach Bayeux and many of the tiny villages in the area I have been inside bunkers I have been to Pointe du Hoc where so many Americans lost their lives I have visited the American Cemetery to pay honor to the thousands of heroes I have watched many documentaries about WWII So I can imagine D Day very vividly This book while fiction gives the reader insight into that pivotal event in the war That said at times I felt like I was reading a YA novel It was too simple too predictable too romanticized for me

Allies author Alan GraEver with the Allied nations coming together to storm German occupied FranceWelcome to D DayDee a young US soldier is on a boat racing toward the French coast And Dee along with his brothers in arms is terrified He feels the weight of World War II on his shouldersBut Dee is not alone Behind enemy lines in France a girl named Samira works as a spy trying. My students who are obsessed with D Day and war in general are probably going to love this book I’ll be interested to hear what other librarians think of this one I usually LOVE Gratz’s books but this one missed the mark for me There are over 5 character perspectives and a couple of them were adults It was interesting to see the war from the perspective of Dee age 16 who was German born but whose family left Germany as political dissidents when he was young Henry a Black medic was my very favorite character I didn’t feel attached to any of the characters except for Dee and Henry however
