No BioFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up?A riveting saga of the author's parents' harrowing escape from the Ukraine during the Russian Revolution. Ukrainian Jews were caught in the middle of the struggle for power between three forces: the Bolshevik Red Army, the anti-Bolshevik White Army, and the forces fighting for Ukrainian independence. The clearly written, vivid, chronological account provides a good balance between political background and personal story. There are graphic descriptions of the indignities inflicted on individual family members, which add to the power of the narrative. Many books concern Hitler's time of persecution, but Manya's Story demonstrates that the severe oppression of Jews had begun many years before. The short length and glossary of Yiddish and Hebrew terms make it accessible. This new edition (the first was published by Lerner in 1978) is the same as the old except for the addition of black-and-white photographs of family members, a list of Gray's relations who survived, and an updated prologue. A compelling, poignant account that readers won't be able to put down until the end.?Sandra L. Doggett, Urbana High School, Walkersville, MD
