I believe this book tells the story of a glorious adventure. I enjoyed this book because it described life for the Jews and the Danish during the time of World War II. The main character Annemarie changes throughout the course of the story. At the beginning of the story Annemarie is a silly girl who doesn?t understand the dangers of war. By the end of the book Annemarie became a hero. As I read this book it kept me on the edge of my seat. The book kept me thinking about what would happen on each new page. The book also made me wonder what it must have been like to be a Jew during the time that the book took place.
I would recommend this book to fifth and sixth graders. I think that 5th and 6th graders understand the book and what?s going on in the book better than a younger child would. I also think that this book would be appealing to both boys and girls. I think girls would like it because the book's main character was a girl and a hero. I think this book would be appealing to boys because it discusses WWII and what was going on in that time.
