Going over
by Beth Kephart

This is one of those times when I just have to talk about a book that isn’t even out yet – but is coming soon. Next month will be the release of what I think is going to be a great YA book offering something a little different.
Going over is set in Berlin in February 1983. It is a city divided by a barricade separating east from west.
Ada lives among the rebels, punkers, and immigrants of Kreuzberg in West Berlin. Stefan lives in East Berlin, in a faceless apartment bunker of Friedrichshain.
How will Ada and Stephan get together? What sacrifices will they make? Who will stand in their way? Will love win over?
This book brings in the realities of a life that once existed for many.
I love the short sharp chapters I have seen online and I am certainly looking forward to the release of this book.
The music in this trailer even has an 80’s vibe to it.
