From Anna

By Jean Little. Published in 1972 by Scholastic

Moving is never easy, especially when you’re a little 9-year-old girl moving from the tumult of living in Nazi Germany to Canada in the 1930s. And if you’re clumsy and your older brothers and sisters all call you “Awkward Anna” as well, it’s even worse. In award-winning writer Jean Little’s poignant novel, From Anna, readers are sure to be touched by Anna Soldens’s struggles with her new home in Canada, the unfamiliar language of English, and the realization that, in fact, there is a reason for her being such an awkward child.
