It takes place in the civil war time at night and morning because then we know where they are at. Hilary a 16 year old wanted to kill all the Jews alive but she is critically injured in an accident and everything changes. So Hilary has become Chana with a different family. Then she us a Jewish girl fighting for her life in World War ll. I didn't agree with Nazis mistreating Jews because in the book Nazi's always thought violence is the way to fix problems with others. In the story it said they killed Chana's dad because he was complaining that he was tired.

If I Should Die Before I Wake

I've read once that Nazi's were horrible people to Jews. Also I was surprised when Chana said she will take her dads place in his job because like some people really do care for family while others don't. Also in the book she hated Jews now she thinks she was wrong all along. I love the way she then knew she was wrong. Next my favorite part was when Chana realized how bad Jews suffered because that's a good thing to not just think about yourself. That's also how i felt before because then i noticed how my parents couldn't get me everything i wanted. To me at first i thought Chana was a bad person now i think she is a loving person.

Also, when Chana realized that,I was very shocked and thought she would always hate Jews. Then I couldn't understand why Hilary who turns into Chana doesn't like Jews in the first place because she never knew what they went through. In the book it said in the beginning Hilary who changes into Chana said Chana looks at her really weird. I understand she hated them but not why she hated them.

That's how i felt until my parents explained to my why they couldn't get me everything i wanted. In conclusion, i would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars because I thought it was a had a good theme of not judging others. I would recommend this book to someone who likes to read about history of the Nazi's and the Jews or has a report on those people. If you feel like you are being treated differently then tell someone how you feel that they are treating you differently.

When you do so always remember of how Hilary when the Nazi's treated her family badly. Now you get to know how I feel about the book.

Though when she gets in a motorcycle accident her life is turned upside down as she battles death in a Jewish hospital. Then Hilary starts to blackout, and see's life not through her eye's, but through those of Chana, a Jewish girl in the second World War.

You might cry after an emotionally attached character dies. But when you finish, you won't regret it. Jan 06, Alexxa Owen rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is one of my favorite ones about WW2! I got it from my sister who passed away a few years ago so I treasure it. It has good voice and makes everything personal.

May 06, Emily rated it liked it Shelves: Since I had to read this for a class, I didn't like it as much as the other books I had to read for class. This one was hard to get into, but the character switches didn't give me any trouble. I don't remember the book ever going into much detail about why Hilary hates the Jews except that her father was killed because of the supposed dirty trading his possibly Jewish boss might have been involved in. Her anger at her mother is evident in the dialogue because readers learn that her mother abando Since I had to read this for a class, I didn't like it as much as the other books I had to read for class.

Her anger at her mother is evident in the dialogue because readers learn that her mother abandoned her for three days in their home while she went to find Jesus. I think Hilary is trying to find comfort anywhere so she joins the Great Aryan Warriors and falls for one of the boys involved.

Of course, young Hilary becomes wrapped up in her relationship with the boy, Brad, and she ends up endangering the life of her schoolmate Simon and risking her own life on Brad's motorcycle. I had many theories about who Chana may have been in this book. I'm the kind of person that likes to know and understand the relationships between people in the novel and this one was definitely hard to put together.

I don't think the end even gave me much more closure. My theory that Chana was the patient in the room with Hilary seems to be correct for the most part. I liked how at the end of Chana's life she tells Hilary that she can change the world if she changes herself but I still didn't like the ending of the book because it doesn't really explain why Hilary is now calling her own mother "Mama" when she never did before and I don't like how Hilary's memories all seem to jumble together.

There is no real explanation for why Hilary sees Chana's life and then how or why she remembers her own life as well. I think this would be a hard book to teach in school because the end didn't give me enough answers to help my students find the answers to their own questions that they will have. I feel like the ending is letting me down.

I will have to re-read this book in the future to better understand the ending. It just seemed like Nolan was getting tired of writing and needed a way to end the book in a way that doesn't do enough justice to Hilary's own survival. Sep 01, Cari rated it really liked it Shelves: If I Should Die Before I Wake is a book about not judging others until you've been in their shoes and known their suffering. It's about a teenage girl who joins a neo-Nazi group and spends her time hating and tormenting Jewish members of her community.

When Hillary is in a motorcycle accident and lies comatose in a Jewish hospital, the only thing she sees is an old woman staring at her knowingly. Somehow, through this old woman, she is taken back in time to another life where she is a young Jewi If I Should Die Before I Wake is a book about not judging others until you've been in their shoes and known their suffering.

Somehow, through this old woman, she is taken back in time to another life where she is a young Jewish girl named Chana, living in a Jewish ghetto. The book alternates between present time with Hillary in her comatose state, listening to visitors in her hospital room, and to the past as Chana and her family are taken from the ghetto and into Auschwitz. Like all books about the Holocaust, If I Should Die Before I Wake is very sad and mind blowing as it tells about the monstrosities committed against millions while the rest of the world stood by.

It was a little similar to The Devil's Arithmetic , another book where a girl travels back in time to the Holocaust, but there was a very big difference that set this book apart. The beauty of this book is the irony of someone from present day who wears clothing covered in swastikas and is constantly touting hate against the Jewish people, being taken back in time and made to suffer as a Jew.

During her experience as Chana, Hillary learns that all people love, hate, hurt, bleed, and suffer in the same way. What a huge life lesson! A lot of people could benefit from being put into the shoes of the people they hate. This is a good piece of historical fiction and a great eye-opener. Dec 15, Alexandra Carpenter rated it it was ok Shelves: I almost wish this would've been written solely as a plain holocaust novel. The Hilary plot that lay over Chana's story was completely pointless -- even frustrating -- until those last few pages.

And it was certainly not worth the wait, it was just confusing. Additionally, I picked up this book expecting more details of Hilary's Neo-Nazi involvement, and on the rare occasions that it was brought up, the activities of the Neo-Nazi group were laughable. Locking Jewish kids in lockers, and slashing I almost wish this would've been written solely as a plain holocaust novel.

Locking Jewish kids in lockers, and slashing themselves to prove their loyalty to the group? Stereotypical motorbiking, leather-sporting, distraught badboys? I don't think so. I've spent my fair share of time researching these groups, and this is not how most Neo-Nazis in America are. Many of them aren't even primarily anti-semites; it's a lot of color racism and immigrant prejudice nowadays. They're not usually quiet groups performing blood rituals in their basements, they're outgoing, right-wing extremists living normal lives except the days that they're under the command their radical racist leaders.

Most of the higher-ups in these groups don't even come from traditional Nazi groups or anti-Semitist families; they come from the KKK! In short, this book gave a very surface-level and poorly researched look at Neo-Nazis, which basically ruined the whole plot. As for Chana's story by itself, I found it very well put together.

I enjoyed that it followed her life for longer than most stories would. The Auschwitz scenes in particular were very good -- vert reminiscent of Wiesel's Night. Overall, had this book not included Hilary's story, I would've enjoyed it much more. Oct 09, Arielle rated it liked it. I have read a number of books specifically on the Holocaust, so reading about the torture and the horrible things these people had to go through was nothing new to me. Chana's story is heartbreaking and moving.

Her family is ripped apart one family member at a time. Some leave and some die. Going back and forth through Hilary, who is a neo-Nazi and Chana, who is a Jew, is extremely interesting. The relationship that grows between them is one to learn from and to take to heart.

When Hillary becomes Chana and has to go through all the hardships she faced being a jewish girl in poland she realizes that other people truly care about her.

Many of these prayers are either quotes from the Bible, or set traditional texts. While termed "Christian child's prayer", the examples here are almost exclusively used and promoted by Protestants. Catholic and Orthodox Christians have their own set of children's prayers, often invoking Mary, Mother of Jesus , angels, or the saints , and including a remembrance of the dead.

Some adult prayers are equally popular with children, such as the Golden Rule Luke 6: Amen More recent variants: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep; Guide me, Jesus, through the night and wake me with the morning light Amen Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep; Keep me safe through the night and wake me with the morning light If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen Now I lay me down to sleep, I'll assume I'll rise rested and at peace.

For I know all day I tried my best To treat all others with respect. Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep; Angels watch me through the night and wake me with the morning light. By his hands we all are fed. Thank you, Lord, for our daily bread.

God is great and God is good, And we thank him for our food. Thank you my God for the day you have given us! Thank you because you are great and worthy. Thank you for another day of living, Thank you for each breath we have taken Thank you for dying on that cross my God For our sins! Forgive our sins, Lord Amen. A Slovak Lutheran tradition adds a second verse: And may there be a goodly share on every table everywhere. This book was okay, not as good at some of her other books that I've read but still enjoyable.

The main character is misunderstood at home and really just wants to help everyone and it's so sweet! I love the relationship she starts with this boy though and I cried so much when he died!! Why A other great book by Lurlene. I read the whole book in one day and couldn't put the book down. Mar 14, Rachel Lang rated it it was ok. Good, but a bit to predictable and didn't give enough time to flesh out the characters. Mar 12, Kimberly rated it liked it Shelves: Now I know I said that I wouldn't be reading anymore books by this author but I couldn't help it.

When I read it a few days ago I really needed a short book to pass the time. At pages this book certainly fit the bill. As much as I like Lurlene's earlier works this one fell very short for me. I just couldn't connect to the char Now I know I said that I wouldn't be reading anymore books by this author but I couldn't help it. I just couldn't connect to the characters or the setting. The writing and the story in general seemed bery one dimensional to me and almost as though she didn't really put much thought or effort into this book which was disappointing since she's one of my favourite childhood authors.

I wish the Deanne had been more personable and I really wanted to smack her mother because she didn't want her daughter to help people in the hospital. Seriously, who wouldn't want their kids to be that compassionate? To me Deanne although I pitied her for how her mother treated her I just couldn't like. I also didn't like Matt the boy she met in the hospital that much either but I think that it's because the story was so rushed and the author left out a lot of details which I wish she would have put it.

She then stops going to the hospital until she goes back one day on a whim and realizes that she is mean to be there as she helps a young girl who is battling cancer fall asleep. This book sqeaked by with two stars for me. I was tempted to give it one. However, it was a typical junior high girl novel: Also, it did succeed in making me want to volunteer at a hospital, which I think was part of the motivation as the last page says that if you want to volunteer, you should contact your local hospital.

Utterly predictable, but kind of sweet none the less, this is a very young adult novel and I would recommend it to girls in junior high probably, but most likely not high school if I could help it.

I don't think I would teach it in schools, because the characters are too flat. The main character starts out fat and ugly and transforms into a beautiful thin girl because she spent the summer serving at a hospital.
