This is an outstanding book. The author tells her story well. The prose is perfection; it flows beautifully throughout the book. From page one, you are unable to put the book down. Many stories have been written of the Holocaust and the second world war, but be prepared for a different story. One cannot help but feel deep emotions, as well as admiration, as you read about this child bravely facing the burden that her parents put upon her. This is a book well worth reading and owning. It deserves to move up to the best seller list. Anne Lebrecht http://www.annelebrecht.com
