Chaya Lindner is a teenager living in Nazi-occupied Poland. Simply being Jewish places her in danger of being killed or sent to the camps. After her little sister is taken away, her younger brother disappears, and her parents all but give up hope, Chaya is determined to make a difference. Using forged papers and her fair features, Chaya becomes a courier and travels between the Jewish ghettos of Poland, smuggling food, papers, and even people.

Soon Chaya joins a resistance cell that runs raids on the Nazis' supplies. But after a mission goes terribly wrong, Chaya's network shatters. She is alone and unsure of where to go, until Esther, a member of her cell, finds her and delivers a message that chills Chaya to her core, and sends her on a journey toward an even larger uprising in the works -- in the Warsaw Ghetto.

Though the Jewish resistance never had much of a chance against the Nazis, they were determined to save as many lives as possible, and to live -- or die -- with honor.

I love it so far, it gets so into detail and it is realistic to what happened back then. If you like reading about the Nazi and wwll. I highly recommend reading!

A thrilling historical fiction novel suitable for eleven to fourteen year olds. The story follows a young Jewish girl living during a brutal time period, the Holocaust. She joined a resistance group with the job to sneak into and out of ghettos. Great story with good character development.

This book is sort of like a history story but super exciting! Many plot twist and some funny scenes. Throughout this whole book there are many parts that will keep you reading. I Have read this book several times and still very enjoy it.

This book is amazing! It has everthing you want in a book! It has drama, adventure, it is very exiting, and it also is informal. In a tense story it tells the story of World War 2 perfectly. It takes place in Poland in many different towns. It is about a girl who is seperated from her family to join a resistance group. She forms a good relationship with a girl that she didn't like from the start, but started to relize that she was not just a fragile little girl. I love this book and love it! I think that you will to.
