Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anya Rosen and her family have left their home in Odessa for Shanghai, believing that China will be a safe haven from Hitlers forces. At first, Anyas life in the Jewish Quarter of Shanghai is privileged and relatively carefree: she has crushes on boys, fights with her mother, and longs to defy expectations just like her hero, Amelia Earhart.

Then Anya finds a baby—a newborn abandoned on the street. Amelia Earhart goes missing. And it becomes dangerously clear that no place is safe—not for Jewish families like the Rosens, not for Shanghais poor, not for adventurous women pilots.

Based on a true story, here is a rich, transcendent novel about a little-known time in Holocaust history.

Synopsis:

In 1937, the privileged and relatively carefee life of a fourteen-year-old Jewish girl, whose family emigrated from Odessa, Ukraine, to Shanghai, China, comes to an end when she finds an abandoned baby, her hero, Amelia Earhart, goes missing, and war breaks out with Japan. Based on the author's family history.

Synopsis:

Based on a true story, this novel follows a young Jewish girl and her family during World War II as they flee from their home in Odessa to Shanghai.
