"Going Over" was a rather tough read. It is written in both Ada and Stefan's perspectives and jumps around a lot. There is also a lot of reference to German places and words and a history that not too many teens know about. I've attached a help page to this blog for help with this book. Please be patient with the help page. I was using a lot of pages that were translated over from German and some weren't all that clear.
Bottom line, I did enjoy the book and it did bring some interest in a part of history that I haven't really studied. It gave a good look at life at that time and you know what?...that time wasn't too long ago. I would recommend this book as a "get-around" read and not really a "have to".
