“Being kissed by Karl Jager was devastating. And beautiful. War makes you do dangerous things.”

Hanna Mendel liked to know what was going to happen next. She was going to be a famous concert pianist. She was going to wear her yellow dress to the dance on Saturday night. But she didn’t plan on her street being turned into a ghetto. She didn’t plan on being rounded up and thrown in a cattle truck. She didn’t plan on spending her sixteenth birthday in Auschwitz, in a wooden barrack with 200 other prisoners. Most of all, Hanna didn’t plan on falling in love with the wrong boy.

    I've spent the last two years looking for this book without knowing the title. The story has stuck with me and is definitely worth the praises it gets! Love it so much and such an easy book to follow. Would pull out to read again and recommend
