Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A story of Denmark and the Danish people, whose Resistance was so effective in saving their Jews. School Library Journal, Starred
“A deftly told story that dramatizes how Danes appointed themselves bodyguards—not only for their king, who was in the habit of riding alone in Copenhagen, but for their Jews.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The whole work is seamless, compelling, and memorable—impossible to put down; difficult to forget.” Horn Book
“While the novel has an absorbing plot, its real strength lies in its evocation of deep friendship between two girls and of a caring family who makes a profoundly moral choice.” Booklist
