Number the Stars ****

By Louis Lowry
Historical Fiction


A very touching story. Books about WW2 are always sad, but this leaves you with a sense of hope.
Annemarie and her family live in Denmark, Germany in 1943. Her elder sister passed away a couple of years ago, and her family is still deep in grief. When Nazi soldiers come to 'clean out' all the Jews, Annemarie and her family must protect her Jewish friend, Ellen, from being taken. Will they make it to the safety of Sweden in time?
