Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 1997 September)
The gripping story of a ten-year-old Danish girl and her family's courageous efforts to smuggle Jews out of their Nazi-occupied homeland to safety in Sweden. Readers are taken to the very heart of Annemarie's experience, and, through her eyes, come to understand the true meaning of bravery. (Mar. 1989) Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
