Product Details

Praise

“…[a] moving, atmospheric story…Girls will be drawn to courageous Marta, her romance, and her indomitable spirit.”
Booklist

“[My Canary Yellow Star] is not just a welcome addition to Holocaust fiction but an extraordinary novel in and of itself.”
Books in Canada

“Wiseman…uses a dispassionate first-person narrative voice that doesn’t sensationalize the horrors of the occupation of Hungary. At the same time she leaves readers in no doubt about the fear and desperation felt by Jews as the Nazis stepped up their campaign of extermination.”
Quill & Quire

“How Marta and her family adapt, the details of their daily lives, their hopes, fears, embarrassments, and dangers are portrayed with vivid poignancy…These ingredients and more are woven together in a fast paced story line focusing on Marta’s determination, true grit, and, on occasion, sheer luck. My Canary Yellow Star is a dynamic, nail-biting read.”
Ottawa Jewish Bulletin

“…what makes this story different…is that Marta remains a typical teenager…[My Canary Yellow Star is] a suspenseful account of a period of great suffering and injustice…”
Winnipeg Free Press

“…goodness and bravery in the midst of unspeakable evil makes this story an inspiring read.”
The Chronicle-Herald
