Die Wolke by: Gudrun Pausewang

This Book is one of the most touching stories I have ever read. Yes, it is in German!! I really cried when Janna’s Brother is driven over by a car. You can feel the rush when the people push and yank themselves free to catch the train...and you can feel her heart race when she is standing in the pouring rain. Lost and insecure, she is homeless, lost her family and is diseased by the most dangerous thing, radioactive rays.

I am not going to give away too much, but this is a must-read. It is based on the Tshernobyl accident in Europe, where a nuclear energy station has an accident and radioactive waves are released. She is keeping it realistic but yet has that way of writing, where you start thinking about all the bad set in the world.

My favorite part is, where she is so weak and hurt but still yells at the major because all he cares about is publicity and that it looks good if he talks to some kids that “strahl”. She is so weak and yet, the strongest!
