Take yourself back to 1939, Munich.  Nazi flags fly everywhere.  The ordinary greeting has been replaced by “Heil Hitler!”  Friends and family disappear and you are too afraid to ask where.  You are also afraid of the answer.  Sophie Adler is on top of her world. At 14, she is ready to graduate 8th grade and go onto high school and move from the Jungmadel for younger girls to the Bund Deutsche Madel, for high school girls—both part of the Hitler Youth movement.  She is asked to be the group’s photographer and couldn’t be happier. Any questions that Sophie has are pushed to the back of her mind. Then Sophie gets polio.   She does not die.  She does change from a valued member of her youth group to a “useless eater,” a person or animal that doesn’t contribute to the Nazi view of the world and therefore, should be eliminated. Her camera allows her to be a hidden narrator in plain view. She takes pictures of a bench that says, “Jews Not Wanted.” Of a man with a cane beaten because he cannot stand for the Nazi flag. Pictures Nazis do not want others to see.   As Sophie becomes disabled and her body weakened, she turns out to be stronger in spirit. We share her fears and we share her triumph. Camera or not, Sophie lets us see a world in which we know what happened, but Sophie does not yet. Our knowledge makes us want to read to the very last word—and wish the story would continue.

Every world history teacher should use this book to bring to life what it would have been like to live in Nazi Germany.  The power of this fast-paced story for young adults is that it is written from the perspective of someone their age and enables the reader to experience the struggles of this era.  The storyline and setting inspire discussion and thought.

This well written story gives the reader historical information while presenting a moral dilemma. The adult reader will enjoy this book, but I think it is an excellent read for older children and teens. It teaches a wonderful lesson without being "preachy" and presents an opportunity for valuable discussion. I look forward to reading more books by Jeanne Moran.

This is a  novel that will leave you wanting more.  It tackles a moral dilemma from the teenage point of view during  one of the worst periods of time in history.  It's a great read!!!
