Staff Reviews

Set in the early years of the Nazis,  Killeen’s novel is one that I suspected was more intense and painful than I cared to endure.  However, once I began just a few pages, I was totally committed to Sarah the orphaned teen-ager who saw her mother’s bullet riddled body and had to immediately find a way to survive.   Her early gymnastic training helps her escape more than once and often helps her focus.  “Count the seconds, wait, take control.”  No longer allowed to participate in gymnastics because she is Jewish, she, sometimes, in her mind, awards herself gold medals for outstanding physical escapes.  Infiltrating a Nazi school for girls, she lives in peril until finally her spy mission becomes very real. Even though this book is historical fiction, it helps the reader understand what the resistance faced in combating the Nazis.

 My only regret with the book is that I see no mention of a sequel.  I want to know what happens to Sarah as she continues as a spy.

“I opened this book at 9:00 a.m. and closed it at 4:15 p.m. after turning the last page. At times, I felt like my eyeballs just couldn't move as fast as I wanted to be reading. As much of a page-turner as this is, it also delivers a real sense of history and an empowered and empowering 15-year-old heroine who has suffered yet never gives in to fear or hopelessness. It's like Harry Potter meets James Bond in Nazi Germany, starring a Jewish orphan who just keeps kicking butt.”
