Review:
This story is one of my personal favorites! It’s an inspiring story full of emotion. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, and is one you’ll want to read again! (I’ve read it 3 times)! You’ll feel the characters joy and pain, and will also be enlightened as to the hardships people faced under Nazi control. The book is relatively short. It costs $6.76 at Amazon. It’s in the Allegheny County library system too where you can read it for free.
