This historical fiction book written by Jennifer A. Nielsen is an engrossing and suspenseful novel with crazy plot twists and diverse characters. Chaya (the main character) is a resistance fighter against the Nazis. She teams up with a girl she despises at first and quickly learns to love her like a sister. They move from ghetto to ghetto, trying to help their people fight.
This book discusses the struggles the Jews had to face in the hands of their enemy. This book has made me realize what true courage and strength is. The most appealing aspect of this book is when Chaya reunites with a lost family member. I really do love this book and the way the book unfolds history. I rate this book 4/5 stars.
