About the Author

Karen Cushman's first book, Catherine, Called Birdy, was a Newbery Honor winner and her second, The Midwife's Apprentice, was awarded the Newbery Medal. She was an adjunct professor in Museum Studies at John F. Kennedy University for 11 years, before retiring to Vashon Island, near Seattle, Washington, in order to write full time.

"World War II raises the stakes, though, presenting a momentous obstacle that even the most determined child cannot fully master, but renaming her journal Book of Life helps Millie make a fresh start." --The Bulletin

"A must-buy for school and children's libraries looking to expand their historical fiction selections." --School Library Journal

"Another outstanding creation...A lively book filled with humor, love and transformation." --Bookpage
