5 Star Review of The Children's Train

Leah Gasentzo, a NetGalley reviewer, gave The Children's Train a 5 out of 5 star rating!

"I'm positive that I held my breath for most of this book. I wouldn't be surprised if I'd held my breath for the entire time I'd been reading this. This book was so unlike any other I've ever read. It's gripping, powerful, heartbreaking and intense - so, so, so intense. During the terrible reign of Adolf Hitler, the kindertransport brought Jewish children away from Germany and into England, where they were all scattered into different families or parts of England where it was thought they'd be kept safe from Hitler's reach. The stories of each individual character in the book were horrifying; especially knowing that it was all based on real facts. I know I cried through about half of the book - all the way to the end, and when Hitler finally got what he deserved and Peter ran off to get his sister, my tears were pretty unbearable. I honestly have no words right now; this book was amazing and thrilling, and so sad."
