My Rating: ★★★★☆
Genre: Children’s Literature; Fiction; Historical Fiction
Plot: In Denmark during the Second World War, Annemarie Johansen learns a lesson in growing up and making adult decisions in order to keep those around her safe. When German soldiers start imprisoning Jews, Annemarie’s family takes in Ellen, Annemarie’s Jewish best friend, as their own daughter to keep her safe.
My Thoughts: This is a pretty easy read, but it’s still good. I picked it up because I read it in second grade (ish), and couldn’t remember how it ended. This book is really about protecting those around you by making sure they only know what they need to in times of danger, as well as becoming an adult before you really need to.
