Ali is a very relatable character and the author does an excellent job conveying the stages of grief Ali is going through. The grief and sometimes the anger Ali feels is palpable throughout the book, just as it would be in real life, for someone who had suffered two losses of that nature.
I appreciated the author shedding light on the German Resistance during World War II. I have read many historical fiction novels on WWII, but most haven't addressed the Germans who were part of the Resistance.
I received this book through BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge 2015.
I enjoyed taking this journey with Ali.
