Review by Jacob M.

In Bridge to America, Fivel and his family are in Poland. His father is in America trying to get money for the rest of Fivel's family to come to America. One day Fivel is playing and he sees Cossacks who are fighting to get control of the road. He runs down the road screaming to his brother Benyomin, "Cossacks! Get home!" When Benyomin finally heard him, he started running home and almost got caught by a Cossack. Want to find out if Fivel's family gets to America? Read Bridge to America to find out!

Great book, but a bit scary!!

Review by cutecat

I really like this book! It was very well written and to be honest I was impressed. I love to read, but sometimes it is hard to find a good book to read. I know a good book when I see one and I literally COULD NOT put it down!! Also something you might like to know is that it is a bit scary so if you get scared easily I do not recommend reading this before bed.
