Reviews

"Sara's story is appealing, and the explanation of the twinning program is very well done. This book would be a good fit in both public and school libraries."-- (10/01/2008) "Sara's journal is so well-written that you forget it is historical fiction as you read. Kacer has effectively contrasted the lives of two Jewish girls, Sara in the Warsaw Ghetto and Laura in present day Montreal...Whether you read this novel for your own personal enjoyment or use it as a supplementary resource when teaching grade 6 social studies, this book is well worth reading. Highly recommended."-- (05/30/2008) "This book would be a powerful piece to include in Remembrance Day or World War II discussions and a wonderful way to honour the memory of those children who suffered through, were orphaned or died during the Holocaust."--Canadian Children's Book Centre (11/01/2008) "The author beautifully melds historical events with the contemporary issues Laura is facing. Many photographs are included, which helps to bring the story to life. This story of history, faith, and hope belongs in every public and Judaic library and would be a welcomed addition to any Holocaust curriculum. Highly recommended for ages 11 and up."-- (07/01/2009) "The photos throughout the book are well chosen and remind you that while the characters are fictional, the background isn't. In these days of Holocaust denial that's important...A good introduction to the subject for children...The language is simple and even reluctant readers should be able to manage it. Recommended."-- (02/06/2009)
