Throwback Thursday: Number the Stars

Today I recommend: Number the Stars

This is a recommendation from the Teen Advisory Boardnumber the stars

Annemarie Johansen has, at the age of ten, been under Nazi occupation for three years in her native land of Denmark. When the Nazis begin to round up Jewish people, she and her family take in Annemarie’s friend, Ellen Rosen, and pretend Ellen is their daughter. But the family knows Ellen and her family will never be safe in Denmark so they must find a way to smuggle them out of the country and into neighboring Sweden. This is a wonderful story of courage in the face of terrible circumstances.

You can find this book in the Juvenile Fiction section at J LOWRY.
