Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The ever-popular World War II genre gains new depth in Hahn’s painfully honest story about a sixth-grade girl in small-town Maryland…As in the best political fiction, there are no simple messages. Everything is rooted in story and character and in a view of the landscape where categories waver in the heat, blur in the snow.” Booklist (starred review)
“Subtle, thought provoking…Hahn succeeds in raising questions as valuable as they are vexing.” Publishers Weekly
“There is plenty of action and page-turning suspense to please those who want a quick read, but there is much to ponder and reflect on as well.” School Library Journal
