You can find the full review and all the fancy andor randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight Thirteen Doorways is such a genuinely gorgeous book I hardly know where to begin Look it's gut wrenching let's get that out of the way I mean it's orphans during WWII you're probably not expecting sunshine and roses right The thing is as hard as it is at times to read there is a really inspirational aspect to it as well It left me hopeful that maybe humanity isn't doomed Our mistakes are plenty but there's still good there's something worth fighting forThe characters are incredibly well developed I rooted for them from the start And not just because of their circumstances but because I genuinely cared about them as characters The story is told mainly through Frankie one of the young women at the orphanage and well a ghost named Pearl I have mixed feelings about paranormal so I am extra happy to report that the author handled this magnificently I absolutely was as invested in Pearl's story and observations as she had such a special and uniue insight into both Frankie and the world around themAnd the stories were compelling of course Frankie is trying to keep her sister and herself safe in the middle of incredibly tumultuous times There is a war raging around them and they fear especially for all male family and friends as they see young men in their own orphanage being drafted and volunteering for the war I cannot comprehend the terror frankly Between worrying about your daily existence and a looming global battle Frankie had unfathomable courageThe range of emotions that this book made me feel was epic I laughed I cried I was angry happy inspired I haven't read anything with such impact in uite some time Bottom Line This is one of the rare books I would recommend to uite literally everyone I know It's such a heartfelt touching novel with current era takeaways that should definitely not be missed

Frankie her sister Toni and her brother Vito are all living in a Chicago orphanage run by nuns in the last years of the Great Depression and through WWII We follow Frankie's story as she grows up and out of the orphanage and as she's observed by the ghost of a girl who died from the Spanish Flu in 1918The hardship that Frankie has to endure first with the nuns and then with America on a war footing not to mention a father who's neglectful at best and abusive at worst makes for a compelling story of survival And that harsh realism is brilliantly underlined by our very unreliable ghost narrator who seems to grow in strength at the same time that Frankie grows into her ownIt's a powerful book that barely fictionalizes a real world person whose struggles deserve to be known The only thing that leaves it less than a five star book is inherent in its premise Because it's based on a real world person the events of her life like in the real world don't really tell anything like a coherent plot plot is for the ghost parts Instead we get to see Frankie endure and grow against a seemingly endless stream of random and often tragic eventsStill it's clever and odd and a wonderful mix of biography and fantasy Well worth a read
