About This Book

Ten-year-old Annemarie and her best friend Ellen often think of life before the war.  It's now 1943, and their life is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching through town.  When the Jews are "relocated," Ellen moves in with Annemarie's family and pretends to be one of them, yet her life is still in danger.
