Description

New York Times bestseller Jennifer A. Nielsen tells the extraordinary story of a Jewish girl's courageous efforts to resist the Nazis. Chaya Lindner is a teenager living in Nazi-occupied Poland. Simply being Jewish places her in danger of being killed or sent to the camps. After her little sister is taken away, her younger brother disappears, and her parents all but give up hope, Chaya is determined to make a difference. Using forged papers and her fair features, Chaya becomes a courier and travels between the Jewish ghettos of Poland, smuggling food, papers, and even people. Soon Chaya joins a resistance cell that runs raids on the Nazis' supplies. But after a mission goes terribly wrong, Chaya's network shatters. She is alone and unsure of where to go, until Esther, a member of her cell, finds her and delivers a message that chills Chaya to her core, and sends her on a journey toward an even larger uprising in the works -- in the Warsaw Ghetto. Though the Jewish resistance never had much of a chance against the Nazis, they were determined to save as many lives as possible, and to live -- or die -- with honor.

Professional reviews

"The story of Chaya Lindner's defiance as part of a Jewish resistance group in Nazi-occupied Poland will grip those who listen to this action-packed historical fiction. Jesse Vilinsky's narration features a commanding, rebellious tone as Chaya smuggles people from ghettos and terrorizes military targets. Vilinsky is also nimble enough to be tender and emotive when describing the horrific suffering of Chaya's loved ones. The new recruit Ester's initial na•vetŽ and later act of self-sacrifice offer distinct vocal contrast with Chaya's voice. Vilinsky's pronunciations of Yiddish, German, and Polish words provide added richness to the setting. In the afterword, author Nielsen reads about the lives of real-life resistance fighters, adding a another level of depth to this engaging audiobook. E.A.N. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
