Summary

As life for German Jews becomes increasingly perilous, Anna’s parents put her on a train leaving for England. But the war follows her to Kent, and soon Anna finds herself caught up in a web of betrayal and secrecy. How can she prove whose side she’s on when she can’t tell anyone the truth? But actions speak louder than words, and Anna has a dangerous plan.... 

A brilliant and moving wartime adventure from the author of Evie‘s Ghost.

Critic reviews

“Peters tells Anna’s story of escape with great humanity, and this novel is an excellent way to whet young appetites for classics such as When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr and Carrie’s War by Nina Bawden.” (Alex O’Connell, The Times, Children’s Book of the Week)

“A fast-paced adventure, whose elegant prose and cliffhanger chapters should keep even less confident readers gripped to the thrilling end.” (Emily Bearn, The Telegraph)

“A gripping, moving piece of historical fiction.” (Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian
