I loved reading this book. It was beautifully written. I could've gone on and on reading this book for weeks. It is about a brother in sister before and during WWII -- they live in a somewhat unhappy family in Denmark. They talk about the places they want to go - she wants to go To Siberia. We hear about their adventures, their dreams. We read about the Nazis coming into Denmark and their occupation.

I loved reading through it, until the very last few pages. I just really didn't like the ending. I felt it was unsatisfying, and I was disappointed given how much I enjoyed the book. I've thought it over and can't understand the meaning of the ending.
