Felix lives in a convent orphanage high in the mountains in Poland. He is convinced his parents are still alive and that they will one day come back to get him. When Nazi soldiers come to the orphanage Felix decides to escape and make his way home. The journey to find his parents is a long and difficult one, as all of Poland is occupied by the Nazis and a dangerous place for a Jewish boy. Felix manages to live and look after himself and another orphan, Zelda, with the help of a kind dentist, Barney, who is hiding and looking after a number of Jewish children. When the Nazis discover them, Barney makes the ultimate sacrifice for the children, electing to go with them on the train to the death camps, rather than taking the option of freedom offered by a Nazi soldier, one of his grateful patients.

    " I enjoyed this quick read. I read it in about 2 hours. I always enjoy books that are based around the facts of World War 2. I will be picking up the sequel to this one. "

    " Read this as a class in year 7. I found it really interesting, but it gave me horrible nightmares at night for the longest time. I only get nightmares from this if I read this before bed. But I actually found it very saddening and interesting. I really liked it. Just... Don't read it before bed. xD "

    " Once I escaped from an orphanage to find Mum and Dad. Once I saved a girl called Zelda from a burning house. Once I made a Nazi with a toothache laugh. "
