I've only read the first few chapters myself, and it's got a couple of dark passages, but it is a book about D-Day, so that should not be a surprise. Anyways, if a tiny bit of shock value is what it takes to spark an interest in reading, I think it's totally worth it.
The stories are always about a kid (usually 11yo) who lives through historical disasters, and we learn about those disasters through his/her eyes.
The tales are well-written and include facts- as well as historical fiction to hold the audience’s attention.
They are exciting and sad; gripping and profound; tragic and heartwarming. You can always count on the main kid-character surviving...but not always the other people in the story.
Your child and you will certainly come away with the intended morals:
*War is Hell. (D day, Pearl Harbor, Gettysburg, American Revolution, Civil War etc)
*People can be evil: (Hitler, 9/11, maybe in a few years, Trump will be a subject of one of her books)
*The newest inventions aren’t always the best: (Titanic, Hindenburg)
Don’t turn your back on nature: (Tsunamis, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, floods)
Animals are wild; don’t turn your back on them either:: (sharks, grizzlies)
And molasses is...well. We are reading that one next.
Really can not recommend enough.
