Olivia wants to read this so I read it and we are going to discuss it.

What a great story showcasing once again courageous men and women who have lived before us and the sacrifices they have made. This is a great fictional (yet based on fact) novel for my daughter to read and I look forward to talking to her about it. I believe that this new generation will have to be courageous like the people of Denmark during World War 2. Will we and our children have the courage we need to for the future and do what needs to be done?

Reread 4/16/10: Actually we listened to this book on a very long day road trip that we took today. This is a fabulous book to talk about WWII and the Jews. We had several powerful discussions, and this book truly moved my kids. I've bumped it to a 5 stars. Very powerful.
