    I was completely immersed in this story of a 15 year old Jewish girl who agrees to become a spy in the battle to defeat Hitler. I may be suffering burn out from reading too many books set in this time period, but this was a new World War II plot for me. The book begins with the murder ...

    While the style of writing and the narration isn't typically my jam, I am thoroughly impressed with the depth of research, worldbuilding, and sensitivity toward the portrayal of a Jewish girl in Nazi Germany. This is the opposite of The Girl Who Wouldn't Die, which I found to be an ant...

    5 Words: War, power, monster, school, violence. Read my Q&A with Matt Killeen Content warnings: graphic violence, child abuse, antisemitism. Sarah is FIERCE. This book is incredibly fast paced. It starts off at a run and doesn't let up. It's brutal and violent and at ti...

    Update: 6/19/18 I'm giving this a full 5 stars because I loved the book so much that I don't even remember nor care about what I took a 0.5 off. I still keep thinking about it and I want to read it again, and so you see, I'm still in a book hangover a full month later. That's how powe...

    I absolutely loved this book. It's fierce, spirited and exciting - and it combines two of my favourite things, early 20th century history and boarding school books. Sarah is a brilliant main character, and the situation the book puts her in (infiltrating a Nazi boarding school as a Jew...

    Happy book birthday, "Orphan Monster Spy"! Thank you to Penguin Random House LLC for an advanced copy of this book! Sarah, abandoned at a checkpoint in Nazi Germany because her mother was shot and killed (a really thrilling first chapter, I must say), finds refuge with a man she ...

    3.5/5 I liked the clever and badass main character, Sarah, and I typically love reading WWII historical fiction. However, while this book did have some exciting moments, I mostly found myself slogging through it and putting it down for long periods of time. It was not a bad book by a...

    Didn't love the writing, I thought it brushed over every possible life-threatening subject matter and didn't really take anything seriously. I disliked the characters and the plot was unbelievable, it was hard for me to finish this one. ...

    Un libro de estilo juvenil pero que se adentra en un tema escabroso como son las Napolas nazis. Las napolas eran una especie de internados donde estudiaban los hijos de los nazis más fervientes, siempre que cumplieran con el arquetipo ario; aunque más que historia/matemáticas/litera...

    I love the tagline 'A teenage spy. A Nazi boarding school. The performance of a lifetime.' and was gripped by Orphan Monster Spy from the start. Orphan Monster Spy begins with 15-year-old Sarah on the run from the government following her mother's death. She meets a mysterious spy...

    I was completely immersed in this story of a 15 year old Jewish girl who agrees to become a spy in the battle to defeat Hitler. I may be suffering burn out from reading too many books set in this time period, but this was a new World War II plot for me. The book begins with the murder ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It's out of my comfort zone of fantasy and science fiction being a historical fiction but it's bloody good. Some parts were hard to read (subject matter not anything bad on the writers part) but it was compelling. I loved Sarah so much and am actually really...

    Fifteen-year old Sarah becomes an orphan when her mother is shot to death at a checkpoint, trying to escape Germany. While Jewish by birth, Sarah is blonde and can pass as Aryan. She is brave and quite an actress, saving the life of an English spy. To exact revenge, Sarah agrees to be ...

    Me ha encantado este libro. La verdad es que lo imaginé solo con ver el título. Pero obvien la sinopsis, menos mal que la leí después, como siempre, pero te cuenta la historia al completa, exceptuando el final, por lo que no permite ir adentrándote en las situaciones e intriga. ...

    I absolutely loved this book. It's fierce, spirited and exciting - and it combines two of my favourite things, early 20th century history and boarding school books. Sarah is a brilliant main character, and the situation the book puts her in (infiltrating a Nazi boarding school as a Jew...

    Happy book birthday, "Orphan Monster Spy"! Thank you to Penguin Random House LLC for an advanced copy of this book! Sarah, abandoned at a checkpoint in Nazi Germany because her mother was shot and killed (a really thrilling first chapter, I must say), finds refuge with a man she ...

    3.5/5 I liked the clever and badass main character, Sarah, and I typically love reading WWII historical fiction. However, while this book did have some exciting moments, I mostly found myself slogging through it and putting it down for long periods of time. It was not a bad book by a...

    Didn't love the writing, I thought it brushed over every possible life-threatening subject matter and didn't really take anything seriously. I disliked the characters and the plot was unbelievable, it was hard for me to finish this one. ...

    I was completely immersed in this story of a 15 year old Jewish girl who agrees to become a spy in the battle to defeat Hitler. I may be suffering burn out from reading too many books set in this time period, but this was a new World War II plot for me. The book begins with the murder ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It's out of my comfort zone of fantasy and science fiction being a historical fiction but it's bloody good. Some parts were hard to read (subject matter not anything bad on the writers part) but it was compelling. I loved Sarah so much and am actually really...

    Me ha encantado este libro. La verdad es que lo imaginé solo con ver el título. Pero obvien la sinopsis, menos mal que la leí después, como siempre, pero te cuenta la historia al completa, exceptuando el final, por lo que no permite ir adentrándote en las situaciones e intriga. ...

    I absolutely loved this book. It's fierce, spirited and exciting - and it combines two of my favourite things, early 20th century history and boarding school books. Sarah is a brilliant main character, and the situation the book puts her in (infiltrating a Nazi boarding school as a Jew...

    3.5/5 I liked the clever and badass main character, Sarah, and I typically love reading WWII historical fiction. However, while this book did have some exciting moments, I mostly found myself slogging through it and putting it down for long periods of time. It was not a bad book by a...

    Didn't love the writing, I thought it brushed over every possible life-threatening subject matter and didn't really take anything seriously. I disliked the characters and the plot was unbelievable, it was hard for me to finish this one. ...
