Very interesting autobiographical tale of a Jewish family who flees the Nazis by going to Shanghai, where they live in sub-standard conditions but maintain their sense of self-worth. A good read!

It was better than I expected. This book, although supposedly giving the experiences of a young girl, seemed to really be more of an adult's subsequent recollections and understandings to some extent based on information that became available after the described events occurred. It seemed a little far-fetched that one of the Jewish underground young men was so prescient about what was and would be going on in the war in the near future. Notwithstanding, I did feel like I was living the young lady's experiences in this terrible time. Sometimes, things dragged a bit because of the monotonous life the Jews were forced to live in Shanghai.

Interesting and different story of WWII- I found this educational and interesting, I wish there was a little more at the very end-but a fascinating story about survival.
