Book Review: Resist by Emily Ann Putzke

Being part of the advanced reader’s team for Resist was an absolute privilege. Thank you, Emily, for letting me read your amazing book!


Emily took the lives of Hans and Sophie Scholl and brought them to life in a beautiful, realistic manner that pulls the reader into their terrifying world of Nazi Germany. This is not at all a light read; be prepared to cry. :)


Plot/Storyline: 4/5

Since Resist is about real people’s lives, there wasn’t much of a “normal” plot for the book. However, it wasn’t needed, as the lives of the Scholl’s and their friends was exciting enough without a typical fiction plot.


Characters: 4/5

I felt like the characters were a bit vague and could have been built upon. It was far from horrible, though. :)


Writing: 5/5

Emily’s writing is always amazing, and this book was no exception.


Dialogue: 5/5

Beautifully done.


Want-to-read-ability: 4/5

Around the middle, the book got a little slow. This book couldn’t be described as a thrilling adventure, but is was very good. I learned a lot about WWII.


Warnings: Some frightening scenes of warfare and ghettos that might not be appropriate for younger readers. Also, mild language was present.


Overall, I enjoyed this book. Emily is an extremely talented writer and I can’t wait to see how her writing continues to grow with each book!
