"The whole work is seamless, compelling, and memorable--impossible to put down; difficult to forget." -- The Horn Book
"Like Annemarie, the reader is protected from the full implications of events--but will be caught up in the suspense and menace of several encounters with soldiers and in Annemarie's courageous run as a courier on the night of the escape." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Readers are taken to the very heart of Annemarie's experience, and, through her eyes, come to understand the true meaning of bravery." -- School Library Journal
