about

Una novela de misterio ambientada en la Segunda Guerra Mundial con un profundo mensaje sobre justicia social, racismo y prejuicios, amor, amistad y valentía.
Amsterdam, 1943. La joven Hanneke se dedica a comprar y vender todo lo que encuentra en el mercado negro, a escondidas de sus padres. Es su manera de rebelarse ante la ocupación alemana y sobrellevar la pérdida de su novio en el frente. Pero su vida da un giro cuando una de sus clientas le hace un encargo inusitado: que localice a una chica judía que mantenía oculta y que ha desaparecido sin dejar rastro.

Tiene que dar con ella antes de que la encuentren los nazis.

Un relato conmovedor e inolvidable de valentía, dolor y amor en tiempos imposibles. Basada en una meticulosa documentación, La chica del abrigo azul es una extraordinaria y cautivadora novela de una de las nuevas voces de la ficción histórica.

Reseña:
«Un mosaico de culpabilidad y aceptación, de responsabilidades crecientes y de reacio heroísmo, el alcance de la mayoría de edad de Hanneke en dolorosas condiciones es un recordatorio de cómo la guerra consume y transforma las pasiones de la vida cotidiana. Cada desgarradora escena de esta hermosa novela es conmovedora y potente, y todas y cada una de sus palabras hacen que la historia parezca verdadera.»
Elizabeth Wein, autora de Nombre en clave: Verity

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

An unforgettable story of bravery, grief, and love in impossible times

"Girl in the Blue Coat is a powerful, compelling coming-of-age story set against the dark and dangerous backdrop of World War II. It's an important and page-turning look at the choices all of us--including young adults--have to make in wartime. A beautiful combination of heartbreak, loss, young love, and hope." -Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale

"A tapestry of guilt and acceptance, growing responsibility, and reluctant heroism, Hanneke's coming-of-age under heartbreaking circumstances is a jarring reminder of how war consumes and transforms the passions of ordinary life. Every devastating moment of this beautiful novel is both poignant and powerful, and every word feels true." -Elizabeth Wein, New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity

Amsterdam, 1943. Hanneke spends her days procuring and delivering sought-after black market goods to paying customers, her nights hiding the true nature of her work from her concerned parents, and every waking moment mourning her boyfriend, who was killed on the Dutch front lines when the Germans invaded. She likes to think of her illegal work as a small act of rebellion.

On a routine delivery, a client asks Hanneke for help. Expecting to hear that Mrs. Janssen wants meat or kerosene, Hanneke is shocked by the older woman's frantic plea to find a person--a Jewish teenager Mrs. Janssen had been hiding, who has vanished without a trace from a secret room. Hanneke initially wants nothing to do with such dangerous work, but is ultimately drawn into a web of mysteries and stunning revelations that lead her into the heart of the resistance, open her eyes to the horrors of the Nazi war machine, and compel her to take desperate action.

Beautifully written, intricately plotted, and meticulously researched, Girl in the Blue Coat is an extraordinary, gripping novel from a bright new voice.
