We rated this book:


Allies is about kids during World War II facing their problems. This story has a lot of different characters who have their own backstories and motives for what they push them to do what they need to do. Dee is fighting against the Nazis, however, he is German himself. Samira’s mom has been captured by the Nazis while she was fighting as a part of a resistance organization in France to stop the Nazis. Each kid’s story is unique to their own experience. The stories of each of the characters, however, intertwine with one another all leading up to D-day.
Allies is a good book that can be used to help kids understand the events of D-day and the Nazi takeover. It has its really heartfelt moments that help you feel for the characters in a way that not many other books do. It is interesting to read about characters that are your age who are undergoing something that you might never experience in your life. Understanding the tragedy of the world at this time while also telling a story is not something many other books care to delve into.
