Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Read Han Nolan's story giving the account of the Holocaust is amazing...it is very much the more action packed and unsubtle version of Anne Frank... I would recomend this book to anyone and would be thrilled to see it read in classrooms...the writing is so powerful and the internal dialogue of the characters makes you want to look inside yourself and allows a greater understanding of views of different people during the Holocaust... THIS BOOK WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Human Capacity To Hate and Love I find with Nolan's books, I'm always left feeling enlightened to another persons point of view. WW2 from the two girls eyes was beautifully contrasting, and I found myself rather attached to both characters, like I knew them, by the end of the characters. I felt really sympathetic towards Hilary's mother too... Anyways, you should definately read it, especially because we all need to realize the human capacity for hatred.
