Eva Underground by Dandi Daley Mackall takes us back to Communist Poland. Our main character, Eva, and her father travel there from Chicago because Eva's father wants to help the radical underground movement. Eva is angry and afraid - she has no desire to be a part of the group or be anywhere but home with her friends in Chicago. Slowly but surely, she becomes immersed in her surroundings and begins to understand the importance of what her father and his friends are trying to accomplish. She also quickly becomes interested in Tomek, the 19 year old translator.

I really felt like I got an inside view into a piece of history I had little to no prior knowledge of. I was impressed with the way Dandi was able to both keep things basic enough to be easily understood and intense enough to feel harsh and realistic. It doesn't take long for Eva to begin to face the harsh realities of life head on. As she becomes more interested in the people around her, she is introduced to her own shortcomings (namely, being a spoiled American) and ends up trying to grow into a person she can look in the mirror and be proud of.

One of my favorite parts of the book is when she travels with Tomek to his family's plum orchard. She initially goes only to try and get in with Tomek, but once she is there - she falls in love, not only with him, but with his family and community. She discovers the beauty of people - even when under intense pressure from the government and from the simple fact of being poor - she sees people refuse to compromise integrity, honesty and basic human decency.

This is not one of the books that is written in such a way that the reader becomes a part of the story. I always felt very much like an onlooker versus a participant. So, while I don't feel that the writing itself is extraordinary on its own, I do believe that the story it told is. There is a lot of intensity and tension packed into a fairly short book; I definitely recommend taking the time to read it! ( )

Eva Underground, was a book that was extremely hard to put down. Its story of an American girl, Eva. whose life changes when her and her father must move from Chicago, to Communist Poland during the year 1978, a place far from everything they've ever known. A real look at what life was like during those times, Mackall writes with sometimes gut-wrenching truth. I recommend this book to everyone. ( )

Eva Lott is having a pretty great senior year in one of Chicago's HS. However, her happiness is not going to be lasted forever. When her father, an English professor, tells her they are moving to Communist Poland to help with a radical underground movement, she is beyond angry. Soon Eva is forced to leave behind her beloved life in Chicago to life in a place that doesn't even have meat in its stores, let alone pepperoni pizza or records. Worst of all, everywhere she goes, the government is watching.
But something happens while Eva is plotting her escape back to the States. Despite having all the comforts that she had in US, Eva discovers that Poland has grown on her. Somehow, in the glow of an unusual friendship with a moody boy named Tomek, Eva begins to wonder if she is found home in the most unlikely of places. ( )
