Second Fiddle by Rosanne Parry - OPTIONAL

Parry, Rosanne Second Fiddle, pgs. 233 Random House, 2011. $16.99. Language-G; Sexual Content-G; Violence-PG-13; Jody dad is in the army during the year 1990, so when the Berlin Wall falls, her family gets ready to move again. Jody will lose the two best friends she has ever had, but will they have one more adventure together? When the girls find a Soviet soldier, almost dead they decide to help him get back to his family. This book was good but seemed childish. The soldier's description after being beat was pretty gruesome. I think that the author should have included a pronunciation guide, not all of us speak French, German and Russian. EL-MS-OPTIONAL. Student Reviewer: K.B.
