In the book review series, Charity offers praise, summary, and analysis of the text so that parents can decide which books are worth reading. Charity praises the quality writing and the powerful proposal within the narrative that evil can serve the purposes of good. Yet, Charity questions whether The War That Saved My Life is really a book that is psychologically appropriate for children under 13, given the abusive family relationships.
