Escape to West Berlin

Escape to West Berlin
Maurine F. Dahlberg

Heidi lives in East Berlin during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. She is told that the restrictions on food, travel, and pay is all to make a perfect society in the future. Then one day, her father, a worker in West Berlin but lives in the east is threatened with evection and shuned. Soon, Heidi's parents are afraid the border will close altogether...

In my Social Studdies class, we have been studying the Cold War and so this book sounded like it would cover the same subject. This book turned out to be covering some of the exat topics that happened in the Cold War. This was a marvelous book and I would recomend it to anyone who likes history and action books.

If you lived in East Berlin, would you try to work in the west?

After nearly drowning, would you swim a long distance, even if it was your only chance to see your family again?

How would you have escaped to West Berlin?

Please give me your comments and answers to this post.

Eragon Book 4 and Book 3 Release Date!!!


I found out about five minutes ago that Christopher Paolini has just decided to make a FOURTH Eragon book. He says that the third would have been too long to have in one book, and that now it is the Inheratence Series.

For those of you who just care about when book 3 is coming out, you will find it on the shelves on September 23, 2008, almost a year from now. :(

Please give me your reactions for this astonishing news.
