I am reviewing a copy of My Name is Hanna through Netgalley and Mandel Villar Press:
My Name is Hanna is a beautifully written story of a young Jewish girl coming of age in wartime Ukraine.
Hanna Silka’s in on the verge of turning fourteen when Hitler comes into the Soviet Occupied Ukraine and is determined to free her area of all the Jews, until the German Occupation . She spent her life exploring Kwasova with her younger siblings and admiring the drawings of Leon Stadnick and helping her Mother dye Pysanky eggs but now their families are forced to flee into the Forest and in dark caves beneath the rolling meadows where it is said there are evil spirits!
Months of living underground has left them sick and malnourished . Hanna’s Father ends up missing in this time and it falls on her to find him. The others are two weak or sick! Will Hanna find out a way to save her family and friends? Find out My Real Name is Hanna!
Five out of five stars!
