Recensioner i media
A School Library Journal Best Book of 2015 "These teenagers risked all--and lost much. . . . This energetic work of nonfiction . . . will cheer the hearts of readers whatever their age." --The Wall Street Journal "Told in straightforward, even prosaic language, this account will help young readers imagine themselves in the midst of the unimaginable -- and will show them how kids much like them managed to survive." --The New York Times "[An] inspiring account." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Hoose tells this largely unknown story with passion and clarity . . . A superbly told, remarkable true story." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Their story is one of bravery in the face of constant danger and of increasingly meaningful acts of sabotage . . . An important and unforgettable book that adds a significant chapter to the history of WWII." --Booklist, starred review "Often reading like a thriller, this title puts a human face on the often-overlooked Danish Resistance . . . Captivating." --School Library Journal, starred review "What an edge-of-your-seat narrative it is-and even more compelling for teen readers, who are the same age as the real-life protagonists." --The Bulletin, starred review "An outstanding addition to the WWII canon . . . Hoose brilliantly weaves Pedersen's own words into the larger narrative of Denmark's stormy social and political wartime climate." --The Horn Book, starred review "A rousing real-life adventure tale." --Christian Science Monitor
