The Winter War by William Durbin

An interesting take on a much-ignored piece of WWII (the Soviet invasion of Finland) and a good story for lovers of underdogs, but too many details seemed contrived or formulaic, and I thought it skewed young. Thumbs Down.

Not much to add to Elizabeth's comments. The writing just wasn't award-winning. Thumb's down.

I'm voting NO on this as I think that it's a little young for TU and set in a time period that would not appeal much to teens
