Annemarie and her best friend Ellen, a Jewish girl, are not very afraid of the soldiers standing on the street corners. They have blended in, and they hardly remember life without them. However, their parents are terrified of them, and one night, Ellen and her family must hide. Ellen's parents disappear, and Ellen must pose as Annemarie's sister.
How long can Annemarie and her family fool the Nazis?

Simply told, Lois Lowry weaves yet another story for younger readers (though adults will enjoy it as well) that will keep them reading through the end.
My only complaint is the cover, which does not match the discription of any of the characters, and that I can only find this book in paperback. I have been looking for a long time (on other sites other than PaperBack Swap) and have not found it in hardcover, which is too bad because this book is worth it.
Don't let the fact that it's in paperback stop you from getting this book. Even though it is not directly a true story, it will give readers a taste of life during WWII.
