The German Girl

"I was almost twelve years old when I decided to kill my parents." ~ 1%

This is the story of a twelve-year-old girl's experience fleeing Nazi-occupied Germany. Back in 1939, Hannah lived in Berlin's highest social class. Her family was admired by many. Then suddenly, Berlin is draped with flags, their possessions are taken away, and home no longer feels the same. Hannah and her best friend, Leo, go along with their families on a ship promising safe passage to Cuba. But the ship to freedom turns out to be a death sentence.

Decades later in New York City, an eleven-year-old girl named Anna receives an envelope from Hannah, her great-aunt. Anna and her mother travel to Havana to meet Hannah, now 87 years old. Their visit reveals family secrets, journey tales and a history full of pain.

I did not finish reading The German Girl. It reminded me of other long-winded books with pointless details and unnecessary descriptions. Not to say that The German Girl is not readable; it was just not the book for me.

Happy Pub Day, Armando Lucas Correa. The German Girl is available today.
