The War That Saved My Life Make- Lauren Imelio

The War That Saved My Life Make- Lauren Imelio

In “The War That Saved My Life,” written by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, young siblings Ada and Jamie endure much neglect and abuse almost the entirety of living with their birth mother. The sibling’s mother blames their constant mistreatment on Ada’s clubfoot, which could have been fixed when Ada was young, but her mother refused. Back in the 1930s and 40s when this story took place, there were barely if any resources to help children who were in bad situations. For this cycles make, my group and I decided to compile a list of places and resources that could have helped Ada and Jamie, and would definitely help struggling children in the Chico area. When I am a teacher, I want my students to feel completely safe and comfortable coming to me if something is not going right at home. In the case that they don’t feel comfortable enough, I will have a list of resources posted in my classroom in case anyone needs it. I feel as though this could help many children feel comfortable enough to speak out if it is to the right people.
