Sophie is a teenager in Germany in 1934. She argues with her parents, has her first boyfriend and enjoys the world around her. The sudden rise of the Nazis, the dangers to her Jewish friends and her fear for her handicapped brother form the center of this book. Her friend and lover Isaac, smuggles people out of Germany, tries to save books before the Nazis can destroy them and protects Sophie from her most dangerous instincts. This is an excellent book written from Sophie's perspective as someone who disagrees with the Nazis and fears for her country.
