A Newberry-Award winning children's book about the realities of the Holocaust in Denmark, 1943. The story is told from the POV of a 10 year old girl whose best friend's family is Jewish. Though the story is fiction, the author's note at the end states that the story is equal parts nonfiction and fiction. An amazing, quick read about how far people will go to protect another.
