Oddly organized, almost stream of consciousness within a young girl. Hard to understand where the story was going at first, but then it all came together. ( )

A hauntingly beautiful book. The author uses an unusual perspective for this YA tale of the Holocaust - that of a child who has survived and is trying desperately to adjust to freedom and peace. Anna was hidden in a Dutch home for the duration and has now been reunited with her parents. As all three of them try to come to grips with their memories and their nightmares, we see the struggle through Anna's eyes; and Anna doesn't always understand what she sees. Another survivor, a neighbor who is still searching for her lost daughter, helps with Anna's adjustment - and Anna is able to help Mrs.Neumann in her turn.

The story is told in present tense, which I usually don't like, but is not obtrusive here. Anna's story has a spare elegance that will linger long in your memory. Definitely recommended. ( )

This book is okay... But I hated the writing style. If you want to read amazing books about World War II, read "In My Enemy's House" by Carol Matas or "The Cage" by Ruth Minsky-Sender. ( )

"Young girls should be counting ducks, not dead people". The war is over, but Anna is not over the war. Her parents are not the same people, things are not the same.

Wikipedia.com states that Ida wrote as a form of therapy some 30 years after the war. I have read all of her books. ( )

One of the first books that I read as a child about the Holocaust and is one that I highly recommend to other children. It introduces the Holocaust and what it was all about in a child-friendly way. ( )
