Summary: "Fourteen-year-old Piri Davidowitz.has managed to survive the death camps and, miraculously, remain with her older sister Iboya, although the rest of their large family has apparently perished. Sick with typhoid, dysentery and malnutrition, Piri spends her first month of freedom in a Red Cross hospital, then is sent with Iboya to Sweden, where they live for the next three years. In Sweden, Piri flourishes-- she is "adopted" by a Swedish family and with the help of their love grows into an outgoing, even exuberant teen-ager, falling in love and gradually learning to live with the memories of the nightmare she experienced at such an early age.Every bit as beautifully told, as profoundly moving as its predecessor, a Newbery Honor winner. Piri's story stands as an eloquent testament to the resiliency of the human spirit."--Pointer / Kirkus Reviews "A powerful document.It captured, perhaps for the first time in young adult literature, the complexity of what it was like to be a teenage survivor in the first years after liberation."--Booklist "Undeniable impact.Aranka Siegal describes.the feelings Anne Frank never lived to enter in her diary."--The New York Times Book Review "The book opens on the eve of the liberation of Bergen-Belsen and recounts Piri's experiences as a patient in a Red Cross hospital; as a student in a Swedish school for refugees; and as the adopted daughter of a loving Christian family in the Swedish countryside.The narrative gracefully interweaves political and philosophical issues with universal adolescent concerns.A moving, thought-provoking story."--Starred / School Library Journal.
