Set during World War II, this novel is told from the viewpoint of a 12-year-old Jewish girl in a small Arkansas town who befriends a Nazi POW in an effort to establish her worthiness as a person. Well-drawn characters and a tightly developed plot create a story that evokes anger as readers deal with questions of prejudice and narrow-mindedness.
