Read & Download Echo AUTHOR Pam Muñoz Ryan Echo AUTHOR Pam Muñoz Ryan Download ´ 104 Ermany Mike in Pennsylvania and Ivy in California each in turn become interwoven when the very same harmonica lands in their lives All the children face daunting challenges rescuing a father protecting a brother holding a family together And ultimately pulled by the invisible thread of destiny their suspenseful solo s. Echo opens like a fairy tale Otto is lost in the woods and meets three strange women who tell him of a prophecy concerning a rare harmonica Enter Friedrich Mike and Ivy three children facing daunting life challenges in the shadow of World War II In each of their solo stories Friedrich Mike and Ivy are in possession of the same rare harmonica leaning on music to get them through the hard timesMyriad themes are explored in this book but the thread that ties everything together is music Various instruments and the sounds they produce are described with an audible richness Music is presented as a metaphor for mankind where each person is an instrument adding layers to the melody of life Music doesn t have a race or a disposition said Father Every instrument has a voice that contributes Music is a universal language A universal religion of sorts Certainly it s my religion Music surpasses all distinctions between people Gershwin heard music in the midst of noise and saw the piece as an array of all that was American a composition of people of every color rich or poor uiet and loud a mishmash of humanitySome of the darkest moments in history are explored in Echo introducing young readers to the subtle ways in which people succumb to malevolence forgoing their freedoms and losing their humanity Their hearts hurt people who used to be friends are no longer friends Neighbors are not neighbors During a war people feel they must blame and take sides Hearts grow smallerYet another powerful message in Echo has to do with the importance of recognizing and nourishing budding talent in young children The book suggests that when a child s passion for an activity emerges and a parent is supportive the child flourishes resulting in a fulfilling life Each child s story is told separately which lends itself to the reader feeling a bit disjointed just when the reader is fully vested in a child their story halts and a new character is introduced This might have been a point of dislike had the author not woven all of the stories together with such finesse before the final page Echo is a smartly structured engaging tale that weaves history with heartfelt stories of memorable characters

This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoActual Rating 45This book Oh my god this book I d be lying if I said I didn t know what I was getting into before I started reading the book but knowing how many emotions you will be bombarded with doesn t really prepare you for them Nothing does until you ll sitting there yelling at the book for giving you too many feels this happened This book is so gorgeously written and so beautifully imagined and I don t know where to startPerhaps I shall start with the one thing that didn t work for me and then move on to all the good stuff because good stuffThere is so much build up and so many emotions running through this book that by the time I got to the ending I had expected something big and huge but I didn t get that The resolutions seemed too easy after everything our characters had been through And while it may be surprising that I am even suggesting this given the size of the book it stands at a whopping 592 pages for the final copy I think this book should have been longer I needed a stronger resolution One that didn t leave me feeling like I had missed out on a big chunk of these characters livesSo there bad stuff out of the way Now on to the good stuff The stuff I cannot even begin describing because I am not sure I am capable of doing justice to this book with my limited vocabulary Soooooo this book IS AWESOMESAUCE It s heartbreaking it s diverse and it s so so GOOD It takes you on a roller coaster of emotions and when you start to fall you are left hanging hoping for the best hoping against hope that there will be a happy ending even though real life offers few How can I explain the roller coaster of emotions How can I even begin to explain how MUCH PAIN I WAS IN How much joy I felt and all the mushy gushy feelings in my heart Stupid hearts Making you feel stuff I think I need to take a break from my heart HEART I NEED SPACE OKAYThis book is divided into 4 parts The first 3 introduce you to three different characters who are all connected by one simple harmonica a harmonica that will bring them joy when life will seem bleak a harmonica that has a magical background story and a harmonica that has a purposeFriedrich lives in pre World War II Germany in a world where he gets to slowly experience Hitler s rise to power He is witness to all the injustices committed against his fellow friends and even his own father It s heartbreaking to read about all these injustices and it s even heartbreaking to know what might happen to Friedrich if they don t leave Germany The thing that is so fascinating about Friedrich though is how he manages to retain his beliefs even knowing what could be done to him because of them The only reason he isn t out there screaming about the injustice of it all is because he doesn t want to endanger his family His story unsurprisingly is a heartbreaking oneThen we have Mike and Frankie Their story is just as heartbreaking even if there lives aren t as affected by the World War What they are is orphans living in a time period where no one cares as much about orphans Mike at the young age of 11 has to be incharge of his younger brother and making sure that the two aren t separated At the tender age of 11 he has to put someone else s safety and happiness above his own and if that isn t heartbreaking I don t know what is Mike is just as brave and lovable as Friedrich and his journey just as beautiful to read aboutThe last main character we meet is young Ivy who lives in California Who on top of having to deal with moving to a new place has to deal with injustices at school because of the color of her skin She just wants to play her music but she cannot even do that in peace She has to hold her family together because she promised her brother who is away at war but how can she do that when she has trouble holding herself together Throughout her story we get to Ivy grow into herself and mature We see her make new friends and we see her grow protective about a Japanese family she hasn t even met It makes you wonder how these kids can even stand to think about someone other than themselves when their situations are so dire Their hearts must be so ginormousI don t want to talk too much about the historical and magic realism contexts of this novel but know that Pam Ryan Munoz knows what she is doing This novel may not be about the historical events but the historical setting is NEVER forgotten It s what affects all of these young kids livesThe stories of these three young kids are moving and heartbreaking but at the same time they offer hope They show us that not all is lost even when things look like they are never going to get betterThis book is so important and so beautiful and I don t know what else to say except that you all need to read this I went into this book knowing I would love it since Ryan is one of my favorite childhood authors and all I can hope is that when you read it you ll love it just as much as I did
