This book made me cry.
On the surface it's a book about two sisters - Meredith and Nina Whitson, but underneath, this book is so much more. It's about surviving in cold Leningrad during World War II.
First half of the book is slightly boring, it's about Meredith and Nina, their lives; not much happens. But when their mother starts telling them story about the girl Veronika, you enter this new world. You can't wait for the chapters when they go back in time and when magic occurs.

This book is so emotional and sad.. It's about a mother who was afraid to love her daughters and what war does to people.
