"An explosion wrenched Marit Gundersen from her sleep and shook her to her rib cage." It's 1942, and the Nazis are beginning their invasion of Norway. Marit and her brother Lars leave their home and their parents and go to live with their grandfather, a man who has never shown a flicker of warmth to Marit. Difficult times lie ahead as their parents have gone to join the Resistance, and Marit will be faced with the harshness of a world where she watches the Nazis take her blankets, her teacher, her security and her friends. Will her grandfather ever show an ounce of courage? Will she survive the dangers that surround her? 227 pages Ages 9-13
