Bluebird is an amazing historical fiction novel set shortly after World War Two. In this story, Eva Gerst leaves Berlin to travel to America. When she arrives, she meets several new friends. These new friends help take care of her friend, Brigit, as Eva searches for her father. Eva’s father was a doctor in charge of Project Bluebird, an experiment at concentration camps. He has fled to America, and now the Soviets and Americans are looking for him. Both want the secrets of Project Bluebird, but Eva does not. She wants justice, and she is determined to do anything to get it.
Overall, this was a very good book. It was filled with suspense, and very fun to read. This book was also very well written, there were a few major twists that made the story more interesting. I really enjoyed reading about the Powell House, and how the American Friends Service Committee helped immigrants adjust to living in the United States. I would recommend this book to young adults, especially those interested in World War Two.
