A year after Stephie Steiner and her younger sister, Nellie, left Nazi-occupied Vienna, Stephie has finally adapted to life on the rugged Swedish island where she now lives. But more change awaits Stephie: her foster parents have allowed her to enroll in school on the mainland, in Goteberg. Stephie is eager to go. Not only will she be pursuing her studies, she'll be living in a cultured city again—under the same roof as Sven, the son of the lodgers who rented her foster parents' cottage for the summer.
Five years her senior, Sven dazzles Stephie with his charm, his talk of equality, and his anti-Hitler sentiments. Stephie can't help herself—she's falling in love. As she navigates a sea of new emotions, she also grapples with what it means to be beholden to others, with her constant worry about what her parents are enduring back in Vienna, and with the menacing spread of Nazi ideology, even in Sweden. In these troubled times, her true friends, Stephie discovers, are the ones she least expected. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Debbie Graham | 12/28/2013

    " I probably should rate a bit higher, I think most kids would enjoy the romance in this one, the interpersonal relationships. Reads a bit stiffly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jpickering | 12/4/2013

    " I like the way the book was portrayed through the eyes of a young Jewish girl who actually exscapes from the area that Hitler targeted before things got bad. I like how it showed how Stephanie felt and how she felt about how her parents stayed behind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Libriar | 6/23/2013

    " The second book in the series is as good as the first. Again, accessible historical fiction about the Holocaust for 5th and 6th grade students. Disappointed that the third book isn't out in English yet. "

    " I hope the next one will be translated and published this year. I want to find out what happens with Stephie and also her parents who were stuck in Vienna. "
