Dolls of War

Pub Date 14 Nov 2017
I am reviewing a copy of Dolls Of War Through Candlewick Press and Netgalley:
It’s 1941 Macy James is eleven and lives off the Oregon Coast with her Father who directs a museum. One of her most prized possessions is the Miss Tokyo Doll She cherishes. It is part of the museums collection, and a connection to her Mother who had just passed away. Mid Tokyo is one of fifty eight beautiful friendship dolls given to American Children by Japan in 1926.
After the Japanese Bomb Pearl Harbor everything changes. Her neighbors demand Miss Tokyo be destroyed, but Macy made a promise to her Mother while she was dying, she would keep the doll safe. Against her Father’s wishes she hides Miss Tokyo to keep her safe. When her brother joins the Navy Macy starts having doubts can being loyal to Miss Tokyo mean she is disloyal to America?
Will Macy be able to save the doll, while remaining a loyal American, or will she have to let Miss Tokyo go? Find out in Dolls Of Wars!
Five out of five stars!
