From Katrina Nannestad, multi-award-winning author of We Are Wolves and Rabbit, Soldier, Angel, Thief, comes a story about family lost and found, and the choices we make when we don't have a choice at all.

I don't want to remember the truck, or the night I was taken, or the family I left behind. I am not a sad Polish girl. I am a good and happy German girl. I am. I am. I am. It's the Second World War and Himmler's Lebensborn Program is in full flight when eight-year-old Zofia Ulinski is kidnapped by the Germans. She has blonde hair and blue eyes, just like the other Polish children taken from their families and robbed of their names, their language, their heritage. But when Zofia is adopted into a wealthy and loving German family, it is easier, it is safer to bury her past, deep down, so everything is forgotten. Until the Polish boy arrives. And the past comes back to haunt her.

'A rare combination of heart-stopping suspense and lyrical warmth.' (on We Are Wolves)
Jaclyn Moriarty, author of the Kingdoms and Empires series

'It's the small acts of human kindness that make this book sing. Heart-swelling, and with characters that won't be forgotten.' (on We Are Wolves)
Zana Fraillon, award-winning author of The Bone Sparrow

'The mini world that author Katrina Nannestad has created is every child's dream.' (on The Girl, the Dog and the Writer in Lucerne)
