About the Author
Kimberly Brubaker Bradley (she/her) is the author of Newbery Honor winners Fighting Words and The War that Saved My Life. The sequel to the latter, The War I Finally Won, appeared on many state-award and best-books lists and was described as "stunning" by The Washington Post and "honest" and "daring" by The New York Times. Kimberly and her husband have two grown children and live with their dog, several po­nies, a highly opinionated mare, and a surplus of cats on a fifty-two acre farm in Bristol, Tennessee.
Reviews
"Historical fiction at its finest. Two-time Newbery honoree Bradley is at her best here; this is a novel that brings layers of the past to life [and showcases] the author's expertise as a gifted storyteller. [Her] latest masterpiece features a determined and daring heroine . . . Readers will be wholeheartedly rewarded." --School Library Journal (starred review)

"This poignant story moves quickly but takes care to consider with sensitivity the excruciating choices Miri must make at every turn as she's torn between choosing safety and honoring her heritage and her convictions. A gripping, humane tale that examines what war demands of children and what it costs them." --Kirkus (starred review)

"Bradley has crafted a compelling historical novel told in Miri's apposite first-person voice. The book has a hint of magic that . . . becomes as satisfying as the whole of this fine novel." --Booklist

"Engaging [and] imaginative . . . Miri's vulnerability and sense of responsibility give [the story] emotional weight and contemporary appeal." --The Horn Book

"Poses thoughtful questions about religious divides and parallels through the experiences of 12-year-old Miriam Schreiber, a German Jew [in 1942 France.] Miri's highly credible emotions and actions make for a deeply sympathetic character facing increasingly dangerous and suspenseful circumstances." --Publishers Weekly
