Saw this in the bookshop and when it was reduced in price on I couldn t say no I originally intended to get it for my 10 year old daughter to read as well I think I may wait another year as my wife thought there was a part in the book non era related that she didn t need to read just yet But I thought it was excellent.
Well drawn characters and a great insight into the mindset of Nazi Germany I couldn t put it down and read it in one sitting.
The story is great, you get to know the main character and how determined a young girl can be Its a fast paced story, one which I found very hard to put down I would definitely recommend this book to others.
Orphan, Monster, Spy ☆ So glad I read this book on a friend s recommendation Fabulous heroine and breath taking plot I stayed up much too late two nights in a row to find out what happens in the end and it s totally worth it Can t wait for Sarah and the Captain s next adventure.
I read this very swiftly as I could not put it down I am just finished and this makes me very sad Wonderfully written, fast paced, great characters and a moving and often shocking storyline I am now eagerly awaiting the next book and have no idea what to pick up now I love it when a book grabs you and doesn t let go read it now
