I Will Come Back for You by Marisabina Russo - ADVISABLE

Russo, Marisabina I Will Come Back for You: A Family Hiding During World War II.  Schwartz & Wade (Random House), 2011.  $18.  Content:  G.  PICTURE BOOK.  A little girl’s Nonne always wears a gold charm bracelet.  When she has the courage to ask, she hears the story of Nonna’s life in Italy during WWII and how most of her family hid from the Nazi’s and came to America.  I am so glad the Russo decided to share her family’s story.  I don’t think there can be enough of them.  While the story is slightly fictionalized, I think this is close enough to the truth that I will add it to my WWII collection.  EL, MS – ADVISABLE.
