Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the German troops begin their campaign to "relocate" all the Jews of Denmark, 10-year-old Annemarie Johansens's family takes in Annemarie's best friend, Ellen Rosen, and pretend she is part of the family.

Through Annemarie's eyes, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggle almost the entire Jewish population, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. A tale of an entire nation's heroism that reminds us there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

With a new introduction by the author.

Review:

"A story of Denmark and the Danish people, whose Resistance was so effective in saving their Jews." School Library Journal (starred)

Review:

"The whole work is seamless, compelling, and memorable — impossible to put down; difficult to forget." Horn Book

My favorite book i have read in 2012. The way it captures your heart and fills you with suspence. It felt like i was the little girl trying to save my friend from the dark side of the world. I gave this book 5 stars because it was the only book i have read that took me on a journey along with the characters. If you read this book have a box of tissues handy and prepare for an amazing trip through the struggles of trying to protect your familey.

Wow! What a Great Book! It is full of suspense and from the very begining it keeps you wanting to continue reading. I think this is a book should win awards and prestigue, as it is detailed about the times of the people that lived in the war time. For those who lived in these times it would be a blessing as the times should never be forgotten, many suffered and this book will give them a remembrance. I would recommend, "Number The Stars [Yearling Newbery]", to all ages, young and old!

D Goreham, May 31, 2011 (view all comments by D Goreham)
This is the story of the Johansen family told from the point of view of ten year old Annemarie. Through her eyes we see how Demark fought the Nazis in their own quiet way. In the 137 pages of this book we grow with Annemarie learning about what it means to be brave and loyal and a true friend. This book should be required reading the year before Anne Frank's story is read.
