Praise

Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2012:
“An engrossing tale set against a compelling, seldom-seen backdrop.”

Publishers Weekly, December 21, 2012:
“Gonzalez stages a fast-paced historical thriller against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War…Ani is relatable as she battles with her bitter mother and struggles to identify her own desires and values. Gonzalez escalates the tension as Nazis bomb Guernica and conveys the magnitude of personal and universal loss, leading Ani to forge a future in war—a path she claims with grace and fortitude.”

School Library Journal, January 2013:
“This book provides a glimpse into an underrepresented world in juvenile literature, making it a good addition to middle-grade collections. Recommended it to fans of Roland Smith’s Elephant Run.”

VOYA
“The benefit of Gonzalez’s novel is that the reader gets to experience Ani’s thoughts and feelings firsthand…Ani’s story shows the multiple layers of wreckage experienced during WWII, and would be an excellent addition to any Holocaust unit.”
