Críticas:

The history is illuminating and fascinating, but where Grant excels even more is in the immersive storytelling and compelling bonds among the multifaceted characters. Just as classic war novels demonstrate how war can reveal common humanity, Grant s exploration of women in battle is no different. --Booklist (starred review)"

All of the protagonists are well-developed individuals, but also represent every soldier girl who carried a rifle, dug a hole, slogged through mud, steamed or froze, prayed or cursed, raged or feared, ran away or ran toward. A gripping and heart-wrenching tale. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

The main characters are all well-drawn, strong women, and the wartime events are well researched and accurate. The alternative history and wartime plot, which reads like a movie, will appeal to many. --School Library Journal"

The experiences of female soldiers in the military are plainly and honestly depicted an immersive, powerful tale. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

The fast pace of this novel, along with its relatable characters and engaging plot, will easily draw in reluctant readers. Grant s well-researched details of living conditions that WWII soldiers endured will appeal to fans of historical fiction. Readers of this book will be anxiously awaiting the sequel. --Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)"

What if American women had fought alongside men in World War II? Michael Grant gives us a magnificent alternate history that feels so real and right and true it seems impossible that it wasn t. Every one of these fictional soldiers has wrapped herself around my heart. --Elizabeth Wein, Award-winning and New York Times Bestselling Author of Code Name Verity"

Michael Grant is a master of twists that not only tear at his readers consciences, they hold a mirror up to our here and now and insist we consider what might otherwise be. FRONT LINES is a masterpiece of speculative story crafting. --Andrew Smith, Michael L. Printz Honor winning author of Grasshopper Jungle"

Front Lines does what great epics are meant to do: tells us the human side of history with honesty, wit, and clarity. Just because it didn t happen this way, doesn t mean it isn t true. --C. Alexander London, author of Proxy and Dog Tags and Tides of War series"

"The history is illuminating and fascinating, but where Grant excels even more is in the immersive storytelling and compelling bonds among the multifaceted characters. Just as classic war novels demonstrate how war can reveal common humanity, Grant's exploration of women in battle is no different."--Booklist (starred review)

"All of the protagonists are well-developed individuals, but also represent 'every soldier girl who carried a rifle, dug a hole, slogged through mud, steamed or froze, prayed or cursed, raged or feared, ran away or ran toward.' A gripping and heart-wrenching tale."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Reseña del editor:

An epic, genre-bending, and transformative new series that reimagines World War II with female soldiers fighting on the front lines.

World War II, 1942. A court decision makes women subject to the draft and eligible for service. The unproven American army is going up against the greatest fighting force ever assembled, the armed forces of Nazi Germany.

Three girls sign up to fight. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr, and Rainy Schulterman are average girls, girls with dreams and aspirations, at the start of their lives, at the start of their loves. Each has her own reasons for volunteering: Rio fights to honor her sister; Frangie needs money for her family; Rainy wants to kill Germans. For the first time they leave behind their homes and families—to go to war.

These three daring young women will play their parts in the war to defeat evil and save the human race. As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, they will discover the roles that define them on the front lines. They will fight the greatest war the world has ever known.

Perfect for fans of Girl in the Blue Coat, Salt to the Sea, The Book Thief, and Code Name Verity, from New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant.

Rio, Frangie, and Rainy will play their parts in the war to defeat evil and save the future of the human race. They will fear and they will rage; they will suffer and they will inflict suffering; they will hate and they will love. They will fight the greatest war the world has ever known.
