Lydia's world may have turned upside down--but she always manages to come out on top!

As an only child, gutsy Lydia has always managed to find adventures and get her own way. But now things are happening that she can't control--like her parents' separation and the Nazi hostility toward Jews in Rumania. Lydia's panicked mother puts her on a children's train bound for a kibbutz in Palestine. Anyone else would fall apart, but Lydia's imagination and nerve get her through the long journey and help her make her mark on kibbutz life--because even if there is a war going on, no one's reckoned with Lydia!

"Forceful and uncannily moving . . . a riveting story in which every element seems freshly lived."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Ingenious, self-confident, energetic and bright, Lydia is a force to be reckoned with--and a character no one can ignore."
--The Horn Book, starred review
