Publisher's Summary

Like the classic heroines of Sarah, Plain and Tall and Little Women, Ada conquers the home front as her World War II journey continues in this sequel to the Newbery Honor-winning The War That Saved My Life.

When Ada’s clubfoot is surgically fixed at last, she knows for certain that she’s not what her mother said she was—damaged, deranged, crippled mentally as well as physically. She’s not a daughter anymore, either. Who is she now?

World War II rages on, and Ada and her brother, Jamie, move with their guardian, Susan, into a cottage with the iron-faced Lady Thorton and her daughter, Maggie. Life in the crowded home is tense. Then Ruth moves in. Ruth, a Jewish girl, from Germany. A German? Could Ruth be a spy?

As the fallout from war intensifies, calamity creeps closer, and life during wartime grows even more complicated. Who will Ada decide to be? How can she keep fighting? And who will she struggle to save?

Critic Reviews

"Thoughtful, brave, true and wise beyond her years, Ada is for the ages—as is this book. Wonderful." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Fans of the first book will love the sequel even more.... While it stands alone, encourage readers to read both books to fully appreciate Ada's remarkable and wholly believable triumph." (School Library Journal)

"It is as exciting as it is poignant and wise and deserves to take its rightful place among the classics of children's wartime literature." (Reading Time)
