Two girls from different backgrounds are brought together through unfortunate circumstances. The developing confrontation in Nazi Germany means Becky and her family must escape, as they are Jewish.

The words leave the reader longing for a reconnection in physical space for the girl’s friendship. This book is relevant for those aged 8-12 who are learning about history, World War II and people from different places.
