    2. Summary: This is the story of Nicole Nieman, who realizes that her family's Jewish heritage will have a strong impact on her family and friends as the Nazis start to occupy France. Several refugees come to stay with her family while fleeing from Nazi soldiers. Nicole's parents wonder if they should also leave home to escape over the border to Switzerland or wait it out. Then one awful day Nicole comes home from school to find her parents and sister gone! The Nazis have taken her family and are l [...]

    3. This book was alright, but I thought it was going to be about a Jewish girl who comes home from school one day to find that her family has been taken by the Nazis. This happens at the very end of the story, so the book is really about the girls life leading up to this event. It really doesn't go into much afterwards.On a completely unrelated note, the title made me repeatedly sing Christmas TV by the band Slow Club.

    4. I had forgotten how ambiguous this book is. While the reader is left with hope for a happy ending, one is never confirmed. It was nice to reread this, as Nicole comes alive on the page and the progression of the years as her world changes felt natural.

    5. This book shows the rational that went into one family's decision not to run from the Germans. It also gives the reader a very clear sense of it's place and time in history. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this as an adult because it was so well-written.

    6. it was a great book u should read it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    7. from 3/17/2012:In this book supposedly written for children, a young Jewish girl and her family, living in France during World War II, discover that their being Jewish matters to others, to them, and to their safety. The book was OK. I don't know why I don't think it was great.

    8. Good story. I didn't like the way the mother talked to the main character or the spoiled way her younger sister acted. The ending left you hanging as if there should be a sequel.

    9. Well-written and (unfortunately) very timely. And then completely unresolved! What am I supposed to do with that non-ending???

    10. It seems like there were a lot of childrens' books about girls and Nazis in the late 1970s. This was well written, funny and sad.

    11. Amazing book that drew into a young Jewish girls life in France, in the brink of a world that is changing for the worst!!!

    12. Although things are becoming more difficult for French Jews 1938-1944, the change is so gradual that her family does not leave, and suddenly it is too late.
