This is a story set in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1943, which was the third year of Nazi occupation in this nation. Annemarie is a ten year old girl whose best friend Ellen is Jewish in an increasingly anti-Semitic culture. Annemarie and her family have to protect Ellen and others in this hostile and dangerous environment. This book was very good; it was tense but not so tense that it would scare younger children.
