Berlin, 1932. Thirteen-year-old Gabriella Schramm's world is slowly, but steadily, crumbling as Adolf Hitler rises to power. The only thing that soothes Gabriella is her favorite pastime-reading. But then her country's tensions rise, the streets fill with soldiers, Gaby's sister's boyfriend raises his arm in a heil Hitler salute, and a family friend-Albert Einstein-flees the country. And her only solace-her books-come under attack. Will Gaby have to leave behind the stories-and the life-that she has always loved?
