review Ó The Story That Cannot Be Told à PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ A middle grade debut that weaves together folklore and history to tell the story of a girl finding her voice and the strength to use it during the final months of the Communist regime in Romania in 1989Ileana has always collected stories SomeAring for her safety Ileana’s parents send her to live with the grandparents she’s never met far from the prying eyes and ears of the secret police and their spies who could be any of the neighbors But danger is never far away Now to save her family and the village she’s come to love Ileana will have to tell the most important story of her lif. This is J Kasper Kramer's middle grade debut and WOW did it knock my socks off I HIGHLY recommend It's longer than the typical middle grade read and there are such complexities that the young adult and adult crowd may enjoy it even So I'd aim for upper middle grade and older The writing often reminded me of The Bear and the Nightingale if you're familiar with Arden's beautiful word weaving and folkloreIleana loves to share stories and change them when they aren't exciting enough In fact she is named for a character in a folktale who was clever and wise But she soon learns that stories can be used to spread the wrong message and her family eventually discovers the government is bugging and investigating their home Now Ileana must escape her city and travel to a small village to live with her estranged grandparents until the coast is clear But as experiences tales and histories are shared fantastical elements become intertwined with realityAs I said previously this one is definitely not just for middle grade readers even though the main character is that age All ages can treasure this story Since it's historical fiction and so well researched it would pair beautifully with a study of Communist Romania in the 1980sFor children's literature middle grade literature and YA literature reviews feel free to visit my personal blog at The Miller Memo
