    1. Really great book, loved how it suddenly went to 10th August 1940, from 12th August 1936, but did finish a bit too early for my liking.


    2. Fourteen-year-old Eleanor Rhys Davis, called Ellie by her friends, lives in England in 1935. She is a very talented swimmer, but she doesn't always get the best grades in school. One of her teachers encourages her to start writing in a diary. At first, she doesn't have much to write about, and so she describes school, swimming practice, and spending time with her two best friends, who are also swimmers - Sarah, who she grew up with, and Tara, a new girl at school who is the daughter of an Americ [...]


    3. Review of My Story: Berlin OlympicsBerlin Olympics is a fictional story of an Olympic Swimmer in the Berlin Olympics in 1939. Some of the main character's competitors really went to the Berlin Olympics in 1939, so you learn a little about them.The reason I read this book was because I find historical fiction fascinating, and I love to read about the times before I was born. It takes place in Britain in 1935-1936 and also in Berlin when the main character and her best friend compete in the Olympi [...]


    4. If I was Minister for Education, I would make this book compulsory in primary schools. I wouldn't rule out recommending it to adults either. Yes it's a children's book, but this is SUCH an important message given the state of the world today. There are so many subtle warning signs woven into the diary entries and the author's capturing of her narrator's voice stands out to me as one of the best out of the My Story/Dear America/Canada etc series. Understanding the past is so, so important, and th [...]


    5. What I enjoyed most of all is how natural the whole story feels, echoing classics like The Diary of a Young Girl. Eleanor, like Anne Frank, spoke to me through the pages of the book, making me believe in her and understand herrshaseshan/blog/berl


    6. Somebody: EleanorSetting: London 1935-1936Wanted: to go to the olympicsBut: she is waiting for her swimming teacher to tell her if she is going or notSo: she also has to do good in schoolNow: she has to do both things at the same time


    7. I really enjoyed reading this book about a young girl who competes as a swimmer in the berlin olypics.I would recommend this to anyone who has read some of the other my story books or enjoys historical fiction or likes to read books like diaries.


    8. Hey! I'm back!This book is a mixture of nazis and determination.I have started reading this, but prefer not to spoil this for everyone.Later she meets Tara, and Tara's much better at everything than her and her Jewish friend.More REVIEWS TO COME
