The further I read in this book the more I found it hard to enjoy. I really had to suspend my disbelief when it came to all the amazing things Valya did in the book. Not only did she survive active combat for months with very limited injury she was also a genius at everything she tried and everyone was desperate to put this school girl in charge.
The very heavy pro Russia/anti Ukraine theme was also very hard to swallow. Valya didn't have any issues with her distrust of the Soviet Union leaders but she had no sympathy for the Ukrainians who had been starved, displaced and killed by the order of these same leaders.
By the end of the book Valya came across as a self-absorbed and unsympathetic character.

Twelve-year-old Remember Patience Whipple ("Mem" for short) has just arrived in the New World with her parents after a grueling 65-day journey on the Mayflower. Mem has an irrepressible spirit, and leaps headfirst into life in her new home. Despite harsh conditions, Mem is fearless. She helps to care for the sick and wants more than anything to meet and befriend a Native American.

Another great entry. Things are really getting more existing with some two great new additions joining the owl duo and with threats to them just getting worse. The adventure just keeps ramping up.
