About the Author
Born in Germany and raised in New York City, Vesper Stamper writes and illustrates novels which tell, through words and pictures, stories of history's rhymes. Her debut illustrated YA novel, What the Night Sings, about two teens emerging from the Holocaust, was a National Book Award Nominee, National Jewish Book Award Finalist, and Sydney Taylor Book Award Winner. Vesper lives with her husband, filmmaker Ben Stamper, and her two teenagers, in the Northeast.
Reviews
"This intimate portrait of two brothers split by the Berlin Wall in 1961 feels like a parable, a warning, a mirror of our modern times." --Daniel Nayeri, author of Everything Sad Is Untrue, Printz Award Winner

"A richly layered, complex historical novel that poses important questions and provides a chilling lens into a dark period of history." --New York Times bestseling author Ruta Sepetys

"The novel is rich with well-researched detail, but it is the nuanced characters who really keep the pages turning.... In a divided world that feels hauntingly like our own, Berliners asks the all-important question: What would you do, or not do, for your family?" --The New York Times

★ "An excellent, nuanced piece of historical fiction." --The Horn Book, starred review

"[Stamper's] portrayal of propaganda and how teens can easily fall prey to this kind of rhetoric is spot on." --Booklist
