An emotional read for students and adults alike. My students connected to this historical fiction the way many do when reading the "Diary of Anne Frank". This 2010 2011 Sunshine State Young Readers Award book made the Grades 3 through 5 list. Definitely takes a mature reader due to content. Spurred a controversy in our school distict. I felt author Joan Wolf handled the holocaust with truth and sensitivity. Many of my older students claimed it was the best book they had ever read. Based on the true account of what happened to the village of Lidice during Hitler's occupation of Czechoslovakia. This novel focuses on eleven-year-old Milada who is taken with other blond, blue-eyed children to a school in Poland to be trained as "proper Germans" for adoption by German families, but she remembers her true name and history.
