In this book for youth, a "Gentile" family is faced with a hard reality during World War II. This reality is that the German occupiers do not want the Jewish people to thrive or to even survive. This causes a crisis for the family, because they are dear friends with a small Jewish family.

The book is very sensitively written, yet it does express the conflicts that arose during World War II. I loved it and thought it was written in such a way that one could use this book as a place to teach children about the history of World War II without overwhelming details of horror.
