A nail-biting thriller about a boy who escapes East Berlin, but not the reach of the Stasi - chilling, page-turning junior le Carre

Praise for Auslander:`A breakthrough into the top league for Dowswell, a hugely impressive thriller set during the Second World War . . . There will be many adults sneakily borrowing this from their children' * The Bookseller * `Auslander is a superlative, at times almost agonisingly compelling, piece of historical fiction . . . The climactic escape to freedom is pure muck-sweat tension' * Financial Times * `Doswell is one of the best new writers of historical fiction for children . . . [Auslander] steps outside the victim culture of novels such as those by Morris Gleitzman and comes close to classics such as The Silver Sword. Admirers of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas should look at this novel as a model of imaginative sympathy' * The Times * Praise for Sektion 20:`A great thriller with a poignant historical background . . . A terrific book' * The Bookseller *
