Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Monday, August 28, 2017
My husband and I have just returned from a two-week roadtrip across Western Canada, and this book came home with us. I bought it at a charity shop in Regina, Saskatchewan and have brought it back to Cambridge, Ontario. I have heard of this book many times, but I've never read it. I'm looking forward to it.

In celebration of the sesquicentennial, I have dedicated my 2017 bookcrossing activity to the reading and sharing of Canadian stories. This book was written by Canadian author Deborah Ellis, so I am registering it as part of my Canada 150 project!

Journal Entry 2 by JessicaEby at Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Friday, September 22, 2017
I have been sick the past few days, and while it's been inconvenient, at least it's given me a chance to read some of the books that have been piling up around here-- including this one!

This book was difficult to read sometimes-- not because of language or quality of writing or anything, but just because of the subject matter. There were some rather disturbing parts in this book. That's entirely fair and should probably be expected given the setting of the book so I don't mean it as a criticism, just a statement. I know this book is not pure fact, but still it's crazy to know that these circumstances exist in our world, and in our time. As I said, it's a difficult read sometimes, but it's worth it.

Journal Entry 3 by JessicaEby at Victoria Park in Woodstock, Ontario Canada on Friday, June 29, 2018

Released 2 yrs ago (6/29/2018 UTC) at Victoria Park in Woodstock, Ontario Canada


Tonight my husband and I visited Victoria Park in Woodstock and I left this book at the Afghanistan War Memorial beside the cenotaph. I thought this was a fitting location for this book as it is a story about a young girl growing up in Afghanistan. I thought it would be a good reminder of what our soldiers, including Woodstock's Private Todd, were fighting for over there.

If you've found this book, thanks for picking it up and checking out its journal! If you're new to bookcrossing, welcome. We'd love it if you'd stick around with us a while. I really hope that you enjoy both this book and the whole bookcrossing experience!

This book was released as part of the 2018 "52 Towns in 52 Weeks" Release Challenge. Woodstock was Town #10 for me. This book is also being included in the 2018 "Canada Days" Release Challenge.
