She has a terrific best friend, she’s dating the best-looking guy in school, and she just made the varsity swim team. But, in the end, I infinitely prefer a realistic and resonant tale such as this one. I fell in love with this book for its plot! Sweat beaded on his forehead in spite of the raw cold inside the tiny Renault.

Review: Eva Underground by Dandi Daley Mackall

As she makes her way onto daleh train, she must make a quick decision whether she will go back to Chicago or stay and help put the movement back together. Overall, it was a good book I just did not like how it ended.

I have to say the historical facts were my favorite part of the book. Of course she wasn”t all right.

The shrill cry of the whistle traveled through her blood, as four Czechoslovakian border guards ran undergeound them, their machine guns raised and aimed.


While the story starts off strong, I undegground it loses a little steam in the romance department as well as a few underdeveloped story lines such as the bitter fued between Tomek’s father and Captain Krysa. Page by page, he examined each document, studying their faces when he got to the photos.

She yearns to be back in Chicago with her best friend and boyfriend and close to where her mother is buried not a big spoiler since you find that out within the first few pages of the book. This is probably due to the fact that the author based the novel off of her own life.


I would rate this book out of a as an 8, because this was one of the best historical fictions books I have read. Aug 19, Liz B rated it really liked it Shelves: The book is filled to the brim with brilliant, delicate scenes that like I said before, are not overdone.

Her father teaches the novice journalists who anticipate the arrival of the forbidden printing press that will enable them to disseminate the truth, if they can get it past a ruthless militia. The guard slung his gun back across his shoulder and took their passports. Confusing beginning but I guess it is supposed to be a very good book. The guard did an about-face and jogged undergroumd to the guardhouse. I can honestly say I still carry them with me in my heart. Apr 23, Misti rated it liked it.

It daleu the small moments that make this book memorable. She couldn’t leave this man.

The inspection went on for the next thirty minutes, one car at a time. In the meantime I got a jump start on the book at google books. But Eva begins to warm to her new life.

I get that Eva started acting out after her mother’s death and perhaps he thought that a change of scenary would do her some good. Apr 30, Sarah Gonzalez rated it it was amazing. Her father ends up getting kicked out of the country.

EVA UNDERGROUND by Dandi Daley Mackall | Kirkus Reviews

Everything about this novel unfolds slowly. 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.

But it’s certainly a journey worth taking. Avenge Me by Maisey Yates 4 years ago. But to take mafkall daughter out of her last year of high school and drag her to a place where they not only hate their own people but they hate Americans? Eva squinted, trying to make out the face of the nearest Communist soldier.

Beyond the barbed wire, a small field ended in more barbed wire. Until she met Tomek.
