Beautiful Blue World by Suzanne LaFleur - OPTIONAL

LaFleur, Suzanne  Beautiful Blue World (Beautiful Blue World, #1), 240 pgs.  Wendy Lamb Books, 2016 (Random House).  $16.99  Content: PG.  

Mathilde lives in a country under attack during an unnamed war.  Food is scarce and she loves her two little sisters, parents and best friend, Meg.  When the government comes looking for children who can help in the war effort, offering compensation, Mathilde takes the test to see if she qualifies.  

This book explores what war would feel like to a young girl.  The main character is likable and it’s an interesting idea but sometimes parts of the plot feel vague because of what is going on with the countries.  This is a middle reader war story.
