review 2: This book was written in a diary format. I believe the author made the choices she did, to really get the point across from Piper's point of view. The writing was very effective because you really understood Piper's feelings about everything that was happening in her life, more than anyone else in the book. This book reminds me of my own life because I once had a brother move away. It wasn't to the extent of Piper's situation. Piper's brother was in the navy, and more times than not, her family didn't know where he was. They could only communicate through letters, and during Pearl Harbor they had no idea if he had lived or not. My brother had moved away to Florida but we always knew where he was, and could call him pretty much anytime we wanted, except when he was at work. The only time he would have been in danger was the time a tropical storm came through, but that was the worst thing that happened. I can relate in a way that, I know how it feels when you really miss someone you love.Overall, I enjoyed this book very much. It kept me interested and I could barely put the book down. I feel that this book would be good for pretty much all ages because it has some very useful life lessons in it. Some of which are, "Always stick up for the people you love," and "Always be yourself." The author did a great job of writing this book and including important history from World War II. less
