Front Lines by Michael Grant Review

Front Lines by Michael Grant is a fast paced, action packed historical fiction novel set back in 1942. At this year of war, women were allowed to join the army. This story follows three young girls, Rio, Frangie and Rainy as they go through the harsh life of the army and fight in the greatest war of history.
Being a huge fan of the genre historical fiction, I had a lot of expectations about this book. Especially since everybody raved about it. My expectations were not put down at all. This story was intriguing from start to finish and I didn’t want to stop turning the page!
I felt that this was book was truly wonderful also not just because of the great writing style but because of the realistic way Grant describes situations. The book contains racism and crude comments toward the blacks and Japenese which made me cringe but that’s why I loved it. Grant didn’t sugar coat the seriousness of the situation.
The romance in this was good and settle and I liked how Grant didn’t focus everyything solely on the war. I liked he weaves everybody’s background in to the story to make it interesting.
Overall I rate this a 5/5! A truly spendid read that I would read over and over again!
