point of view at various times in her life and that of her Uncle Ernst When we first meet Klaudia she is an uncertain young girl Home schooled by her religiousarents who are much older than those of her contemporaries Klaudia suffers the embarrassment of starting school for the first time and of having her German father working as the caretaker at Kelwood High It is 1986 and Eliza suffers intense bullying once her eers discover Otto Meyer is her father Lampooned as a Nazi her classmates are not aware how real their taunts are as Otto Meyer has wartime secrets that cause Klaudia immense shock when she discovers themLater Klaudia becomes Eliza and falls deeply in love with a fellow student Cosmo while at University As story unfolds we see flashbacks of the events of Otto #And His Brother Ernst S #his brother Ernst s life their experiences in Germany during the war Meanwhile Klaudia has to come to terms with her background and see if she can build a new life for herselfAlthough well written I really failed to sympathise with the characters in this book Klaudia Eliza frustrated me as a character and the wartime arts of the novel although well told felt very much like a constructed creative writing exercise and not a story which flowed Although I feel that the author tried her best to weave together the strands of the story ultimately for me The First Secret of Edwin Hoff
personally it didn t work However certainly it was a competent if not inspiring novel Lastly I received a copy of this book from theublisher via NetGalley. Buried at the heart of her familyThis is the story of Eliza and Klaudia one girl two lives and a lie they cannot hide fr. This wasn t the book I expected but oh my it was so much better I expected a tale similar to other ones I ve read this year where the #protagonist has changed her identity because she is either hiding from someone or something and to #has changed her identity because she is either hiding from someone or something and to extent that is exactly what this story is about but it tells a tale much deeper than that truly exploring how we identify ourselves and illustrates how events in the ast have very real conseuences in the resentKlaudia is the only daughter of Otto and Gwyn Meyer and we first meet her in the 1980s as she starts secondary school where her father is the caretaker Having been home schooled by her religious mother surrounded by the religious figures her father carves out of wood Klaudia struggles to socialise something not helped by the fact her father is a figure of fun and called a Nazi by her classmates Saskia Sarginson aints a realistic icture of a teenage angst without it ever feeling melodramatic and so when Klaudia finds some evidence that seems to suggest that the name calling isn t just childish taunts but may have roots in reality her reaction was entirely believableKlaudia leaves home in the 1990s she moves to Leeds and becomes Eliza Bennett named on the spur of the moment in honour of Austen s Elizabeth Bennett She leaves behind the taunts that had followed her through her teenage years and reinvents herself but she can t uite forget the suspicions she has about her father s País íntim

personerspectives of ElizaKlaudia from this Something Wicked
point on I will refer to her as Eliza and her Uncle Ernst It is also set during 3 different timeeriods the 1930s to 1940s 1986 and 1995 to 1997 This is brilliant and the reader slowly learns and about why Eliza chose to run The story also depicts the harsh reality of being a German boy Eliza Bennet has the life she's always dreamed of She's who she wants to be and she's with the man she lovesBut Eliza is. E
fore and during World War II and the long running effect in later lifeI grew to really love Eliza She s had a tough and different upbringing and the family secrets only make it harder for her She learned to rely on the erception of others and this really skewed her own opinion of her family If she only Knew The Truth To Begin
the truth to begin I believe she wouldn t have felt the need to isolate herself from them but then she wouldn t have met Cosmo so hurray for awful family secrets haha No wonder she s confused and slightly scared too I just wanted to hug herI adored Cosmo Eliza s boyfriend He s just a nice simple guy with his own dreams But he feels Pjesme
pressurised to live to his family s expectations Both Cosmo and Eliza have a brilliant way of showing each other that it serfectly acceptable to follow their own dreams He s confused by Eliza s behaviour and it s no wonder really but he does really loved her and I don t think he would have it any other wayIn fact all of Eliza s friends are incredibly supportive It s just her fear of being rejected and ostracised getting in the way of telling them the truth But of course they don t care as long as she s happyErnst is also a brilliant Through him we see the harsh reality of the Hitler Youth He is made to take art in so many awful things and he truly hates it But of course he can t do anything His sections of the story were truly gripping and gave a sadly erfect insight into the warThe ace of The Other Me is just erfect I even read a good 80% of the book in a day I just couldn t ut it down I needed to know what happened There are so many wonderful twists to the story and the full story is not revealed until remarkably close to the conclusion It s just erfect and the story wraps up so nicelyOne tiny incy wincy downside is that I wish of Eliza s story was revealed between 1986 and 1995 But the story is still brilliant without this so I can definitely overlook itThe Other Me is a fantastic and gripping read written is such a wonderful way I would definitely recommend it to fans of contemporary romance and thrillers who don t mind a bit of history There is something for everyone I definitely want to read by Saskia SarginsonThis review and many can be found at My Expanding Bookshelf Klaudia Meyer is a shy homeschooled girl living in 1980s London It s her first #YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL AND REAL SCHOOL SO SHE #of high school and real school so she a bit nervous especially since her father works at the school as the caretaker Klaudia s childhood has been anything but normal Her A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal
