"With vital relevance for today's readers, Safiyyah's War is truly the whole package: action, suspense, danger, family, and friendships. An endearing character, an indelible setting, an unputdownable story based on fascinating real--and overlooked--history. I want to grab everyone I know and say, 'You HAVE to read this book!'" -- Linda Sue Park, Newbery medalist and #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Long Walk to Water

"All at once, Safiyyah's War broke my heart and filled me with immense hope. With its unforgettable characters and exquisite storytelling, this really is an extraordinary book." -- A. F. Steadman, New York Times bestselling author of Skandar and the Unicorn Thief

"In both Jewish and Muslim traditions, to save one life is to save all of humanity. In this beautiful book, based on actual events, we follow the heart-stopping journey of the brave Safiyyah as she helps to repair the world, one injustice at a time. I laughed, cried, cheered, and cried again as Safiyyah showed me what it is to be a hero, a daughter, and, most of all, a devoted friend." -- Deborah Heiligman, award-winning author of Torpedoed: The True Story of the World War II Sinking of "The Children's Ship"

"A welcome example of interfaith solidarity and an underrepresented addition to the WWII Resistance conversation." -- Booklist

"[The] conviction that all people are deserving of safety is deeply felt, and readers will appreciate [the] belief in Safiyyah's ability to do what needs to be done. Recommended." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
