Anna Goeldin - The Last Witch rPlus of food that other orphanseceive it When Misha ends up branded as a Jew and living in a ghetto in Warsaw the tables turn a bit and he begins to act the older brother ole for a young girl named Janina Janina s family was once wealthy and well to do and living in the ghetto is a hard adjustment for her Her father Tobiasz takes in Misha as one of the family and Misha smuggles food in from outside the ghetto to help feed the family and a house of orphans in the care of #Another Man Janina Takes #man Janina takes following Misha on these trips which is frustrating to me as a eader because she s the epitome of a spoiled brat She efuses to do what she s told or to "Stay Inconspicuous She Willfully Causes A Scene " inconspicuous She willfully causes a scene get her way and efuses to accept that her situation has changed I could not understand why Misha stuck by her I understand that he now considered her and Tobiasz as his family but I d have probably beat her to a pulp in that situation Her father is a kind man and next to Uri the only character That I Cared For He I cared for He to make sure that his daughter is safely away from the ghetto when he finds out that they are being Confidentiel défense resettled elsewhere a concentration camp but she stubbornly and selfishlyefuses I couldn t stand the little bratIt s hard for me to enjoy a story where so much focus is put on stupid or annoying characters that I cannot Care That Works: A Relationship Approach to Persons with Dementia relate to Every decision that Misha or Janina made was contrary to the one that I d have made in their place Janina ended upight where I thought she would in the end but until then every time that she wasn t caught by the patrols it was unrealistic and aggravating because she was essentially doing everything she could to be caught and just got insanely lucky time after time On top of that I felt like the writing was just off I don t know how to describe it but it felt simplistic to me even for a YA book But at the same time it felt like it was supposed to be imparting some great truths and while there were a few good uotes I didn t think that there was anything especially profound here So this was OK Not anywhere close to the best book I ve ead on this subject but not terrible I just expected a bit I think. All to be nobodyNewbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli takes us to one of the most devastating settings imaginable Nazi occupied Warsaw of World War II and tells a tale of heartbreak hope and survival through the bright eyes of a young orphan From the Hardcover edition. ,
