Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0773758348, Paperback)

Life in Communist Hungary isn't easy for thirteen-year-old Nelly. Food is scarce and so are clothes. But she has great friends and a special boy she likes, so the hardships are bearable. When the Hungarian Revolution erupts in 1956, Nelly's world crumbles. Along with the Revolution comes a new tide of anti-Semitism. Nelly's family is Jewish, and her parents are convinced that the family must flee. Everything she cares about - her cozy room, her favourite books, and her closest friends - will have to stay behind. There's not time even to say good-bye. Nelly's adventures during the family's harrowing escape to freedom are by turns funny and sad. Will she ever find a place to call home?

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:18:30 -0400)

Thirteen year old Nelly and her family escape Hungary after the October, 1956 uprising, and eventually settle in Montreal, Canada.
