Voice of narrator was irritating and took away from the story. Her tone did not fit the era, and the accents for most of the characters were so bad it was distracting. Try reading the book instead of listening to it.

Listening to this book brought the characters to life. It wasn't as gripping with the twists and turns in Code Name Verity, but it still had a gut wrenching effect. The Holocaust, the friendships and the bravery explored make this a powerful read, especially for young women.

This CD version of the story has an excellent reader, who's use of accents really helped bring all the various characters in this gripping story to life!

This follow up to "Code Name Verity" is a powerful, heartbreaking story that is exceptionally well told. Although it is fiction, It is based on real accounts from concentration camp survivors. The reader, Sasha Pick, is outstanding. She does amazing accents in American, English, Polish, German, French and Russian.
