Appreciate discovering new (for me) juvenile works based on true stories. Uri Orlev does a great job seeking out and listening well to Holocaust survivors whose youth was anything but easy. Lydia of Romania is one of those people. Her strong character reminded me of Little Lulu, my comic book heroine when i was young.....Lydia had chutzpah and Lulu did too, but Lydia is a realy person and Lulu was not. Better to let our lives be inspired and changed for the better by real heroines and not just comic book creations....Passed this on to my daughter whose name happens to be Lydia and she will in turn share it with her children, just the right age for such a well written juvenile work.

I first read this book when I was around 10. I guess I didn't really get all the underlying meanings of the Holocust or some of the situation at that time that the book takes place. But this book stuck with me. Its one of my favorite.s

I got this book as a 10-yr-old off at one of those Scholastic book fairs (which i lived for). It sat on my shelf for a year or two before I ever opened it, but I'm telling you when I finally did read it, it quickly became my favorite book. I'm sure i've read it about 20/30 times. And the best thing is that as you get older you get different things from it. As you learn more about history, you piece the story together and it become more than just a kid's book. When i was eleven i didn't know what the Holocaust was. As a child it just was a story about a funny little girl on a adventure, and how brave and grown up she became. It contained no violence, (except in the character's twisted little imagination). As a young adult, reading it again it was a window into the history of that time from the point of view that same little girl. Lights went on thet had never gone one before. Anyways, amazing book for the 9-12 crowd. I'm 21 years old now and its the only book from my childhood I never plan on getting rid of. "Down with Fraulein Gertrud!"

The Best Book of the 21st Century!
I really liked this book for several reasons:
1.) My name is shared with that of the herione of this story. 2.) It was very funny :-D. Example- Lydia loves making up soapopras with her dolls. And ever uses them a a jury when she declares people to be her 'ememy/ies'. 3.) This book is historically acturate. 4.) It has a happy ending I'd give this book 100000000000 stars if I could!!!!!

The book I read was called Lydia, Queen of Palestine. It's about this Romanian Jewish girl, who's parents are devorst and she doesn't know it! Since German Soldiers were running every where, she went on a train to a community in Palestine. Her mother was going to be smuggled into Palestine later by a boatsman. This community is a fenced in place where everybody doesn't lock their doors or anything.
Before all of this Lydia's father left for another woman. Lydia calls her "That Woman".When he left to go to Palestine he got papers to bring people where he was. He sent them to "That Woman"
There are more important things in this book, but I don't want to give them away.What I liked about this book was that it expressed how she felt. What I didn't like about the book was that the 1st chapter was disgusting. I thought it would be good for 3rd graders, ut as I got into it I thought it would be for my age.
