    I received this book for free as part of BookSparks? YA Summer Reading Challenge. I wanted to like this book, but I had a lot of issues with it. First off, it took me a while to get into the book. It didn?t really engage me until Trudy and her family got sent to the internme...

    Throughout my reading journey, I came to one conclusion time and again. Trudy was such a resilient little girl...not so little by experience now though, as sad as that may be, nor age wise by book's end. True, she held the secrets of others when perhaps it might have been better to exp...

    I liked this book a lot, I had no idea about German internment camps. The first half of the book was fast paced and i was captivated. The camp seemed less violent than I would have presumed, save for one incident. The second half of the book was also interesting, I liked the bulk of...

    This book surprised me in a few ways. When I picked it up, I was a bit suspicious of the premise, worried that German American internment would be positioned as comparable to the Holocaust or Japanese American internment. I was pleasantly surprised that Beck handled the topic without e...

    This is an interesting read. It?s the thoughtful story of a young girl whose father is interned because of his German ancestry during WW2. Eventually the whole family, along with the families of other internees, end up behind barbed wire in internment camp in Texas, often because the...

    I received this book for free as part of BookSparks? YA Summer Reading Challenge. I wanted to like this book, but I had a lot of issues with it. First off, it took me a while to get into the book. It didn?t really engage me until Trudy and her family got sent to the internme...

    Throughout my reading journey, I came to one conclusion time and again. Trudy was such a resilient little girl...not so little by experience now though, as sad as that may be, nor age wise by book's end. True, she held the secrets of others when perhaps it might have been better to exp...

    I liked this book a lot, I had no idea about German internment camps. The first half of the book was fast paced and i was captivated. The camp seemed less violent than I would have presumed, save for one incident. The second half of the book was also interesting, I liked the bulk of...

    Who Are You, Trudy Herman? A Novel by B.E. Beck She Writes Press Historical Fiction , Teens & YA Pub Date 08 May 2018 I am reviewing a copy of Who Are You Trudy Herman through She Writes Press and Netgalley: Trudy Herman was taught to stand up for the truth by ...

    ?Yet, if we trace back far enough, aren?t we all related ? all deserving of equal justice?? Trudy Herman was a normal American girl when the War hit. Her parents came from Germany, but she was born and raised in America. She couldn?t imagine her home turning against her. B...

    This book surprised me in a few ways. When I picked it up, I was a bit suspicious of the premise, worried that German American internment would be positioned as comparable to the Holocaust or Japanese American internment. I was pleasantly surprised that Beck handled the topic without e...

    This is an interesting read. It?s the thoughtful story of a young girl whose father is interned because of his German ancestry during WW2. Eventually the whole family, along with the families of other internees, end up behind barbed wire in internment camp in Texas, often because the...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher on Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I'm currently living in Germany although I'm originally from the United States, but my father was born in Germany. I have always had a strong connection to Germany and my grandparen...

    Trudy Herman lives a very eventful life. When war breaks out and Trudy's father is harassed for his Germanic origins, her very normality crumbles. Their friends and community abandon the family, and Trudy and her parents are forced from their home. Eventually they're shipped out to a T...

    I liked this book. I did share a connection with the characters in this story. Where it was concerned in regards to Trudy and her family; I liked how they stayed bonded no matter how dire the situation they found themselves. Trudy really had to grow up fast. It was sad the things she w...

    I liked this book a lot. It took me a little time to get into but I really liked it when I got into it. The author did a really good job of transitioning to different settings. The end sort of wrapped itself up but it left some things unfinished. I like the ending but wish it wrapped t...

    *I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.* DNF at 27%. Cover looks awesome, except...the main character is actually thirteen (that cover model looks at least 16) and the book reads like a newspaper article. ...

    This historical fiction is a great YA read. It provides a viewpoint of America in the late forties and early fifties and touches on events that are little known today. This story does not try to include WWII internment and racism in full but gives us a glimpse of our own history. I'd r...

    Skimmed to finish it.....story was ok. Characters were one dimensional and did not engage me. The author tried to hard in her descriptions making her writing seem simplistic. ...

    I received an arc of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. This was a really interesting time period and Trudy faced many trials through her teenage years. I really enjoyed this book. ...

    For me this read like a factual documentary more than a fictional story. I realize it?s based off facts but this wasn?t a gripping fit for me. However, it was thought provoking and a beautiful read. Just not one I needed to devour. And that may have been for the best. This would su...

    Great summer read for all ages. Who Are You , Trudy Herman? is an educational historical novel that reminds the reader of both America's past and the importance of standing up and doing the right thing. ...

    This is an interesting read. It?s the thoughtful story of a young girl whose father is interned because of his German ancestry during WW2. Eventually the whole family, along with the families of other internees, end up behind barbed wire in internment camp in Texas, often because the...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher on Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I'm currently living in Germany although I'm originally from the United States, but my father was born in Germany. I have always had a strong connection to Germany and my grandparen...

    Trudy Herman lives a very eventful life. When war breaks out and Trudy's father is harassed for his Germanic origins, her very normality crumbles. Their friends and community abandon the family, and Trudy and her parents are forced from their home. Eventually they're shipped out to a T...

    I liked this book. I did share a connection with the characters in this story. Where it was concerned in regards to Trudy and her family; I liked how they stayed bonded no matter how dire the situation they found themselves. Trudy really had to grow up fast. It was sad the things she w...

    I liked this book a lot. It took me a little time to get into but I really liked it when I got into it. The author did a really good job of transitioning to different settings. The end sort of wrapped itself up but it left some things unfinished. I like the ending but wish it wrapped t...

    This historical fiction is a great YA read. It provides a viewpoint of America in the late forties and early fifties and touches on events that are little known today. This story does not try to include WWII internment and racism in full but gives us a glimpse of our own history. I'd r...

    Skimmed to finish it.....story was ok. Characters were one dimensional and did not engage me. The author tried to hard in her descriptions making her writing seem simplistic. ...

    I received an arc of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. This was a really interesting time period and Trudy faced many trials through her teenage years. I really enjoyed this book. ...

    For me this read like a factual documentary more than a fictional story. I realize it?s based off facts but this wasn?t a gripping fit for me. However, it was thought provoking and a beautiful read. Just not one I needed to devour. And that may have been for the best. This would su...

    Great summer read for all ages. Who Are You , Trudy Herman? is an educational historical novel that reminds the reader of both America's past and the importance of standing up and doing the right thing. ...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher on Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I'm currently living in Germany although I'm originally from the United States, but my father was born in Germany. I have always had a strong connection to Germany and my grandparen...

    I liked this book. I did share a connection with the characters in this story. Where it was concerned in regards to Trudy and her family; I liked how they stayed bonded no matter how dire the situation they found themselves. Trudy really had to grow up fast. It was sad the things she w...

    I liked this book a lot. It took me a little time to get into but I really liked it when I got into it. The author did a really good job of transitioning to different settings. The end sort of wrapped itself up but it left some things unfinished. I like the ending but wish it wrapped t...

    *I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.* DNF at 27%. Cover looks awesome, except...the main character is actually thirteen (that cover model looks at least 16) and the book reads like a newspaper article. ...

    This historical fiction is a great YA read. It provides a viewpoint of America in the late forties and early fifties and touches on events that are little known today. This story does not try to include WWII internment and racism in full but gives us a glimpse of our own history. I'd r...

    Skimmed to finish it.....story was ok. Characters were one dimensional and did not engage me. The author tried to hard in her descriptions making her writing seem simplistic. ...

    I received an arc of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. This was a really interesting time period and Trudy faced many trials through her teenage years. I really enjoyed this book. ...

    For me this read like a factual documentary more than a fictional story. I realize it?s based off facts but this wasn?t a gripping fit for me. However, it was thought provoking and a beautiful read. Just not one I needed to devour. And that may have been for the best. This would su...

    Great summer read for all ages. Who Are You , Trudy Herman? is an educational historical novel that reminds the reader of both America's past and the importance of standing up and doing the right thing. ...

    I had a hard time getting through this book. It was a little too Forest Gump-ish for my tastes. ...

    I received this book as an EARC for an honest review. When I went into this book I didn't know what to think. although I liked the idea of the book it didn't show very well in the writing. The writers was not my favorite but the story line was different which I enjoyed very much. Altho...

    Throughout my reading journey, I came to one conclusion time and again. Trudy was such a resilient little girl...not so little by experience now though, as sad as that may be, nor age wise by book's end. True, she held the secrets of others when perhaps it might have been better to exp...

    I liked this book a lot, I had no idea about German internment camps. The first half of the book was fast paced and i was captivated. The camp seemed less violent than I would have presumed, save for one incident. The second half of the book was also interesting, I liked the bulk of...
