Eva Underground by Dandi Daley Mackall – Review | BookPage | BookPage

Part 2 1 year ago. Project MUSE bt the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide. I never read anything about the “Iron Curtain” in Poland and this opened my eyes to what other people who were not free, had to go through everyday.

But it’s certainly a journey worth taking.


I know sometimes you have to risk your own life for the greater cause. Eva Underground is a young adult novel that is quite different from the norm.

It’sand life is good for high school senior Eva Lott. Eva Underground not only provided that but also took me back to the days when all I did was read historical romance and And when the author stated more then once that both older men are mortal enemies, I had to wonder why or how it started.


But the barbed wire, separating the free world from Communism, seemed even more threatening. Aug 19, Lauren rated it really liked it. Aug 01, Tasha rated it it was ok. Her mom hated curtains. Soon Eva has been transplanted from her comfortable Chicago suburb to a land that doesn’t even have meat in its stores, let alone Peter Frampton records.

EVA UNDERGROUND by Dandi Daley Mackall | Kirkus Reviews

Welcome to 1 week ago. When Eva finds herself rubbing shoulders with political activists no older than herself, things take on a slightly different slant. I wanted it to be a little more in-depth, but it was just right for a young adult book. This book got hardly any publicity, but it is so good! Macoall when her widowed dad says it’s time for them to move, she’s not exactly thrilled. Dean Schneider is an English teacher unserground Nashville.

As she becomes more interested in the people around her, she is introduced to her own shortcomings namely, being a spoiled American and ends up trying to grow into a person she can look in the mirror and be proud of.

Eva wants the security of her comfortable life in America. I really felt like I got an inside view into a piece of history I had little to no prior knowledge of.

After all, they hadn”t done anything, hadn”t even made it into Poland yet. Bby me of follow-up comments by email. The first thing I liked about Eva Underground is the third person narrative that switches perspectives between 17 year old Eva and 19 year old Polish Tomek. Eva Underground is a good book if you are reading it for the purpose of educating yourself on maciall turbulant part of history, whether you are a teenager or adult.

Review: Eva Underground by Dandi Daley Mackall

I had never really read anything about the “Iron Curtain” in Poland and this really opened my eyes to what other people, who were not free, had to endure on a day-to-day basis. About Dandi Daley Mackall.

This is a coming-of-age story and dale romance, and Mackall moves between 3rd person limited through Eva’s eyes and the eyes of Tomek, a young Polish interpreter and college student. I really felt like I got mackalll inside view into a piece of history I had little to no prior knowledge of.

I was impressed with the way Dandi was able to both keep things basic enough to be easily understood and intense enough to feel harsh and realistic.

Between the two stands Professor Lott, with his determination to do something worthwhile with his life, to make a difference.
