Young Llama Thoughts
Honestly, this book was disappointing. I really liked the first 3 quarters of the book, but then it went downhill. I didn’t actually get to finish the book. I stopped because one of the characters in it were LGBT. Now, I’m not against people like this, but I don’t want to read about it. This book was for young adults, but it was also good for older teens. I’m trying to find books that are more in my age group, and yet, it’s hard to find one without LGBT in it.
My mom had warned me about this book being sad, since the time line was placed into the Nazi territory and I would be reading about some things about the Jews. But I would have never expected to run into LGBT in a historical fiction book, even if it was a thing during the time. This book was a story I really wanted to finish, but I didn’t. I wish this story could have been in my preference, but it’s not. If you wish to read this book, I must warn you, I don’t feel like it’s a good choice for any kind of teen, and it’s especially not for kids.
Overall, I really enjoyed the first part of the book, and I wish I could have finished. This book was the kind of story I would have wanted to read over and over, but this story had some problems, both in the beginning and the end. If you are interested in some historical fiction, like me, I would advise flipping through the story before getting a book you think you would enjoy. Even history had some downfalls.
