In this extraordinary book, USA Today Bestselling author Marion Kummerow weaves a story of strength, heartbreak, and coming of age in the Third Reich. 17-year-old Lotte is headstrong and stubborn, impulsive and outspoken, and an avowed enemy to injustice. In Nazi Germany, this can cost you your life. Sent to the countryside by her mother to escape the worst of the war, Lotte longs to return to Berlin. Bored and lonely, she seeks an escape from the tedious daily routine of her remote hamlet. When four Jewish children turn to her for help, she finally finds a purpose: protect the children and help them to escape. Her act of humanity will cost her and those she loves, dearly. Because there are worse things than boredom. There is Ravensbrück. In the notorious concentration camp, girls die. Only women survive. "...a wonderfully engaging tale of resistance and resilience that echoes across the decades." "The truth must be told, and never forgotten." A heart wrenching novel of courage - perfect for readers of The Book Thief, Diary of Anne Frank, and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
