Robert Sharenow ´ 0 Download Download The Girl in the Torch ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The Invention of Hugo Cabret meets True Grit in this heartfelt novel of resilience hope and discovering a family where you least expect it from award winning author Robert SharenowAt the dawn of the twentieth century thousands of immigrants are arriving in the promised land of New York City Twelve year old Sarah has always dreamed of America a land of freedom and possibility In her small village she stares at a p. I was sent an ARC of The Girl in the Torch but my review is entirely my own opinionRight from the beginning of this book I was pulled into Sarah s struggles and admired the way the author set up each conflict and could make every little problem feel like the end of the world for Sarah As a new American immigrant arriving around the turn of the century Sarah faces many varied challenges from losing her mother to choosing to jump from the boat to avoid deportation to scavenging for food and a place to sleep among the Statute of Liberty Through all of this Sarah remains resilient and hopeful which is part of what made this book so special Though Sarah undergoes horrible tragedies she is always trying to move forward and overcome her next challenge She doesn t dwell on things and remains optimistic and kind to those around her Moreso what made me admire Sarah s character is she was actually smart The author Robert Sharenow didn t have her ignore red flags and walk blindly into danger She could realize when something wasn t uite right stand up for herself and get out instead of allowing herself to be dragged into serious trouble This is balanced well with a bit of the meekness and naivety that one would expect of a young girl on her own The balance made her not only a realistic girl but one that young readers can really look up to The pacing of this book is slow at first but is in no short supply of tension Each problem that Sarah has to overcome is presented in a way that makes it hard to look away and each step builds upon itself The last third of the book runs through like a thrill ride as Sarah has to find a way to rescue her new found friends and family from getting sent to prison because of her while still find a way to stay in America It was delightful to see all the pieces come together by the end The epilogue definitely has a bit of sugary sweet cheesiness to it but the overall ending to the story was very delightful I can t think of a better word for it than that since I was just delighted reading it The book had a very diverse flavour to it since the story is of American immigrants Sarah rooms with Chinese people and a black couple befriends an Irish orphan is rescued by a half native man not to mention encounters a variety of cultures settling throughout New York City It definitely reminded me of something I would have read in school It would be perfect for young readers to discuss in a classroom setting as it does touch lightly on things like racism and life for immigrants to the USA I highly encourage teachers and librarians to pick this one up for their students It would also appeal to those who enjoy a historical tale as well All in all 355 stars A very sweet and diverse tale and one to savor

I really wanted to read The Girl in the Torch because as a social studies teacher I thought it would be a great story for the students While definitely written for younger age groups I enjoyed it and would recommend it Set in the early 1900s when America saw an influx of immigrants twelve year old Sarah who always dreamed of the Statue of Liberty and a new life in America is on her way there But then something happens on the boat and she is forced to go back to where she came from Refusing to give up on her dream she makes a uick decision to jump off the boat and actually swim to Lady Liberty Now she is living in the torch just barely surviving but never allowing herself to give up She knows she can t stay there but she also knows how hard it will be to actually get to the island of Manhattan I loved Sarah s strength She is in an impossible situation She s still practically a baby but is forced to fend for herself in a completely different land While obviously the fact she lived in the torch is a little unrealistic the premise was great and the rest of the story was pretty accurate I really believe this book would be perfect for middle graders or even younger adults looking to read and learn about immigration This book should definitely be in every school library
