Publisher Comments:

Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen often think of life before the war. It's now 1943 and their life in Copenhagen is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching through town. When the Jews of Denmark are "relocated," Ellen moves in with the Johansens and pretends to be one of the family. Soon Annemarie is asked to go on a dangerous mission to save Ellen's life.

About the Author

Lois Lowry was twice the recipient of the Newbery Medal, for Number the Stars and for The Giver. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

A Kid, July 13, 2011 (view all comments by A Kid)
My favorite quote of the whole entire book is during the long night of the Jewish New Year in Annemarie's Copenhagen apartment when the Nazi officers came to look for the Rosens.
"Ellen's hands flew to her neck. Desperately she began trying to unhook the tiny clasp.Outside bedroom door, the harsh voices and heavy footsteps continued....'Hold still,' Annemarie commanded. 'This will hurt.'She grabbed the little gold chain, yanked with all her strength,and broke it.... Terrified, both girls looked up at the three Nazi officers who entered the room."
I actually did a book report on Number the Stars and I loved the book. For my project, I came up with an entirely different ending. In my version, Annemarie dies and when Ellen comes back, she finds in Annemarie's diary a heartbreaking piece about good old times, when Annemarie's older sister Lise was still alive and when her younger sister, Kirsti, could have all the pink frosted yellow cupcakes she wanted.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! YOU SHOULD BUY IT! I AM NOT SOMEONE FROM POWELL'S OR ASSOCIATED WITH THIS BOOK IN ANY WAY AND TRYING TO SELL IT TO YOU. IT REALLY IS AWESOME!
