Review: Going Over by Beth Kephart

In the early 1980s Ada and Stefan are young, would-be lovers living on opposite sides of the Berlin Wall--Ada lives with her mother and grandmother and paints graffiti on the Wall, and Stefan lives with his grandmother in the East and dreams of escaping to the West.

Just a quick review for this book.

I wanted to read this book purely for the historical setting and was excited to get stuck into it.

However it didn't quite do it for me. While I loved the setting I struggled to connect with the characters and therefore didn't get drawn in like I wanted to. Don't get me wrong it was beautifully written but something just didn't do it for me unfortunately.
