©2003 Karen Cushman; (P)2009 Listening Library
"Rodzina's musings and observations provide poignancy, humor, and a keen sense of the human and topographical landscape." (School Library Journal)
"A natural for American history or social studies classes, this is especially interesting as a women's history title, with Rodzina portrayed as an unromantic protagonist, big, angry, tough. . . . Cushman talks about the history in a lengthy final note, and she includes a bibliography of other orphan books. (Booklist)
I would absolutely listen Rodzina again. You can always count on Karen Cushman for a vibrant and compelling story with a gutsy and beautifully human heroine. Becky Ann Baker really brought the story to life.
Rodzina grabs you from the very first!A very different heoine, great story line I had to listen to the whole thing right away!!
the development of the main character, you want her to find what she is looking for
the ending of the book! What a great way to end the story!!dont want to give it away!!
