Description

For readers of The Librarian Of Auschwitz, This Light Between Us is a powerfully affecting story of World War II about the unlikeliest of pen pals-a Japanese American boy and a French Jewish girl-as they fight to maintain hope in a time of war. "I remember visiting Manzanar and standing in the windswept plains where over ten thousand internees were once imprisoned, their voices cut off. I remember how much I wanted to write a story that did right by them. Hopefully this book delivers."-Andrew Fukuda In 1935, ten-year-old Alex Maki from Bainbridge Island, Washington is disgusted when he's forced to become pen pals with Charlie Lévy of Paris, France-a girl. He thought she was a boy. In spite of Alex's reluctance, their letters continue to fly across the Atlantic-and along with them, the shared hopes and dreams of friendship. Until the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the growing Nazi persecution of Jews force them to confront the darkest aspects of human nature. From the desolation of an internment camp on the plains of Manzanar to the horrors of Auschwitz and the devastation of European battlefields, the only thing they can hold onto are the memories of their letters. But nothing can dispel the light between them.

Heart-Warming, Touching, and Realistic
By: Nina Kirana

Have you ever had that experience of keeping a lasting long-distance relationship? Maintaining an LDR itself is already a big work to do, let alone the war that continues keeping them apart. It's so heartwarming and touching knowing how these teens; Alex and Charlie, are in love with each other but there seems to be no possible way for them to be together because of the war. Yes, it's only letters that keep them alive.
