My Opinion My Opinion I thought this book was AMAZING! It was really good. It makes you understand the situation at that time. This was the second time I read the book but it was still as good as ever. At first most books bore me and I choose another book to read but I don’t really finish books I start. The time I read the beginning of the book, it grabbed my attention. I started reading it and reading it until it was finished. I’m not really a book worm, but this is one of my favorite books.

Summary Summary Annemarie and Ellen are best friends. There is one problem though. Ellen is Jewish. World War 2 is going on at this time in the book. All the Jewish people were being captured and killed. Annemarie and her family took Ellen from her parents so that Ellen could be safe. The Johansen’s later went to Uncle Henriks place so he could take the Jews on a boat and drop them off at Sweden. He was dropping them off at Sweden because over there, there no one was going to harm the Jewish people. Ellen gets on the boat and reunites with her parents there. The plan was dangerous but it went smoothly. After WW2 ended the Jewish people were free and all the Jews could return back to there home safely.
