#1 New York Times bestselling
author of Iceberg,
Jennifer A. Nielsen inspires readers with a brand-new thriller
based on the remarkable true story of a young Polish girl who bravely
fought, participating in the Warsaw city uprising and took a
stand in the name of freedom.
 


Twelve-year-old Lidia is outside her grandfather's house when
planes fly overhead, bearing the Nazi cross on each wing. Before
the bombs hit the ground, Lidia realizes her life is about to change
forever. Poland has fallen under German occupation, and her father
makes the brave decision to join the Polish army to fight against
the Nazis. Lidia wants to follow him into war, but she's far
too young, and she's needed by her mother and brother.


After her family returns to Warsaw, where life has changed irrevocably,
Lidia continues to play the piano, finding comfort in Chopin,
Bach, and Beethoven. But she also wants to aid the Jewish
people held captive in the Warsaw Ghetto. With the help of a friend,
Lidia begins to smuggle wheat and food into the ghetto. Still,
she feels like she could be doing so much more. She wants to fight.
After her brother joins the resistance, Lidia wants only to
follow in his footsteps. Soon, she begins to work as a courier, smuggling
weapons and messages for the resistance throughout the city.



When the Warsaw city uprising begins – one year after the
more well-known Warsaw Ghetto uprising by Polish Jews – with
gunfire and bombs echoing throughout the streets, Lidia joins
the Polish nationalists’ fight, too, and she and her peers
fight with everything they’ve got. Life will continue to surprise
Lidia, as she and the resistance fighters do their best to
defeat the German soldiers. No matter the consequences, they’re
willing to defend their freedom and their homes from the Nazi
invaders – even with their lives.





Drawing on the extraordinary real-life story of Polish teenager
Lidia Zakrzewski

An inspiring and dramatic account of the Polish resistance fighters
who struggled to force out their Nazi occupiers and reclaim
their nation's freedom from tyranny

A fast-paced historical thriller
