A good story about a young Jewish gal surviving WW II and the Nazis. A good introduction into this subject for younger readers - true, but not graphic. My 10 year old really loved it! Thanks PJ Library! Read full review

This gives a brief overview of Lily's life as the Nazi's come to power and then getting to America. I was definitely interested in the story and only wish it had gone more in depth. Read full review
