When fifteen-year-old Elizabeth finds an antique doll in a garage sale, she thinks it would be a good gift for her dad who's about to ship out for Afghanistan. She doesn’t realize that the doll might be a missing (and very valuable) historical artifact. With the help of Evan, the cute guy who works at the local used bookstore, Elizabeth discovers that the doll is THE soldier doll: the inspiration for a famous World War I poem. Elizabeth becomes the newest link in an epic history of more than a century of war, her story ingeniously interwoven with a cast of characters who we follow from World War I to Nazi Germany in the 1930s, a Czech concentration camp during World War II, Vietnam in 1970, and the aftermath of September 11th.
Jennifer Gold is a lawyer, mother of two, and the author of the YA novel Soldier Doll. A history buff, she also has degrees in psychology, law, and public health. She lives in Toronto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this My sister gave this to me, she read it when it was a White Pine nominee a couple years ago. I thought it was really good. I learned a lot about history without feeling like it.

Editorial Reviews

Gold artfully weaves together relevant snapshots of past wars in Europe and Vietnam with more recent conflicts as she traces the doll’s journey… Genuine and plausible historical connections to the soldier doll coupled with a highly engaging writing style make for a compelling narrative. - Professionally Speaking - 20150615
