Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"In a graphic present-tense narrative, this Holocaust memoir describes what happened to a Jewish girl who is 13 when the Nazis invade Hungary in 1944 . . . A final brief chronology of the Holocaust adds to the value of this title for curriculum use with older readers."--"Booklist," boxed review.

Jessica Putscher, November 30, 2008 (view all comments by Jessica Putscher)
As a fan of Holocaust books this has been one of my top favorites. It is about a girl who is from a town that originally accepts those of the Jewish faith, as the war progresses the community starts to change as the Jews start to have to wear the Yellow stars. It is about a young girl who watches her family be torn apart by the nazi's but finds strength to survive. A must read for anyone interested in WWII
