    Book Review

Reviewed by Elizabeth M. for Readers' Favorite

In The Cuckoo's Egg, author Anna Morten describes her childhood, and how as a young child she was told she was a cuckoo's egg. Anyone who hears this at first may not understand it; however, Anna was determined to break the mold of her circumstances...that her family could not accept her for who she was due to her looks and personality. Despite war breaking out, she prospered and triumphed through everything.

I commend her for what she did, and I greatly enjoyed her life stories. She learned not to believe everything a person said or did and learned to develop her own voice, regardless of what others thought. In the end, she became a stronger woman and was revered by those who looked up to her throughout the years. I highly recommend this book. I enjoyed reading about Anna's life and was inspired by her story. I believe that anyone can benefit from her amazing book.
