Josie by Susan Lowe and Diane Iverson

An incredible based on real life story of faith and survival is what you’ll find in Josie by Susan Lowe and Diane Iverson.

Everyone breathes a sigh of relief once Hitler is defeated. But, for young Josie Trollmann and her older brother, Andreas, the horrors are just beginning. When the communist leader of Yugoslavia attempts to wipe out the ethnic Germans, four-year-old Josie and twelve-year-old Andreas are separated from their family and sent to a concentration camp. Then Josie finds herself at the death camp, Rudolfsnad. Scared and alone, she must keep praying for her survival and to be reunited with her family again.

Wow! Every once in a while a story touches your heart and you know you won’t soon forget it. Josie is that story. This amazing little girl endures so much on her journey. To think of a four-year-old girl being ripped away from her parents and grandparents and then finding herself alone in a death camp, it makes my eyes well up. Each time you think things will be okay, that safety and security Josie grasps for only moments is ripped away from her. Yet, she prays and prays and focuses on her survival and her desire to see her family again. Through mistreatment and undernourishment and illness, Josie prays for God to get home safely.

This inspiring story is written by Josie’s daughter and niece. What a touching tribute to a person I am so glad I got a chance to meet through the pages of this story. The Epilogue provides additional information about Josie and her family, which draws the reader even closer to them.

 

Josie by Susan Lowe and Diane Iverson is a must read for history lovers and those who enjoy incredible stories of faith and courage.

God Squad Mission Him-Possible II, the Giant Slayers by Darlene Laney

The God Squad tackles a new mission in God Squad Mission Him-Possible II, the Giant Slayers

Angel takes the lead on this mission of helping a fellow student coping with being bullied by her former best friend. When Taylor ends up in the hospital after a suspicious accident, Angel fears she is not up to the task. Her fears and odd dreams of battling giants leave her wondering if she’s not cut out for the God Squad, but a mysterious encounter might get the mission back on track and help wipe out bullying at Carver Preparatory.

One of the most challenging issues facing today’s schools is bullying. In the sequel to The God Squad: Mission Him-Possible, The Distorted Mirror, author Darlene Laney tackles bullying head on. Using the armor of God, Angel and the other members of the God Squad find a way to help Taylor make changes in her own life and in the lives of the other students. The side story of how what happened in Angel’s past impacts her ability to help Taylor adds even more conflict. At the end, each member of the God Squad is featured sharing what piece of God’s armor she uses and how. Finally, Angel has a few words of advice for the readers about bullying.

I enjoyed this book from cover to cover. A story of friendship, facing your fears, and empowerment, young people will find much to draw their interest. Sure hope there is another God Squad story in the works.
