Warsaw Poland The year is 1940 and Lillia is 15 when her mother Alenka disappears and her father flees with Lillia and her younger sister Naomi to Shanghai one of the few places that will accept Jews without visas There they struggle to make a life; they have no money there is little work no decent place to live a culture that doesn't under. The author of FOREIGN BABES IN BEIJING and BIG GIRL SMALL Rachel DeWoskin now brings a new novel to the stage SOMEDAY WE WILL FLY This novel captures an unknown moment in history during World War II and the Holocaust Jewish refugees in ShanghaiBefore May 17th 1940 Lillia s parents Bercik and Alenka were circus performers in Warsaw Lillia had a healthy younger sister Naomi and lived in a comfortable home with her family On May 17th 1940 Lillia s whole life is turned over Because she is Jewish her mother goes missing and is presumably dead and her comfortable home is gone when her father whisks both her and her sister away on a boat to Shanghai Although she s far away from the comforts of her home Lillia fights to live again throughout immense struggle including malnourishment and sickness heavy loss and a shortage of jobs and money The lack of money eventually leads Lillia to perform at a gentlemen s club without her father s knowledge To resist against her everyday struggles she makes puppets reminding her of the good times back in Warsaw and creates a show with them She also becomes friends and develops a crush on Wei a Chinese boy As World War II escalates further when America enters the war Lillia imagines a better time and place so that she could continue living and not be just aliveSOMEDAY WE WILL FLY is an intense and immersive novel Lillia even in her unbelievable situation is somehow relatable Her strong and growing character has you easily entranced by what she ll do next Each twist and turn leaves you to wonder what would you have done if you were in her place and whether you agree with her actions As a reader you continuously fall into the story and wonder how you would act if she was interacting with you Additionally her living conditions seem impossible to be true and it leads you to wonder what would happen if you lived in such conditionsDeWoskin uses very descriptive language and you can always see what is occurring in the novel It leads you to make your own decisions on what you believe is going on and what should be done It is also interesting to see what both you and Lillia see and miss even though she is seeing the same reactions you re seeing around her It s also fascinating to see what a teenage girl was thinking at the time about the Holocaust when she was hidden from most of the horrorsIf you like connecting with characters and want to learn some lesser known history SOMEDAY WE WILL FLY is for you Lillia as I mentioned before is captivating character She stands up to conflict and fights to never submit to death but she still has everyday teenage problemsChange happens often and times than not it ends in sadness This book is emotionally taxing and by the time you re done your emotions are fraught By the end you can barely breathe and at the same time you re holding your breath wondering what s going to happen next I highly recommend this book to be read when you have a day to read all day in bedFor history fans learning about the Jewish refugees in Shanghai is fascinating because of how unknown it is to most of us especially in America As someone who has learned about the Holocaust I never knew that Shanghai allowed fleeing Jews into its borders without visas

    Yet another WWII historical setting that I knew little if anything about European Jewish refugees fled by train and boat to Shanghai China Struggling to stay alive they fought to keep their faith traditions alive and create a community there under Japanese occupation A beautiful wrenching story of multicultural friendship—really family—forged through the depravity of war and yearning for a home that may no longer exist
