Read Banned Books!

"Don't spend time waving signs or carrying petitions around the neighborhood. Instead, run, don't walk, to the nearest nonschool library or to the local bookstore and get whatever it was that they banned. Read whatever they're trying to keep out of your eyes and your brain, because that's exactly what you need to know." - Stephen King

The nature and solitude described in this novel are similar to WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING, but the similarities end there. Kidnapped as a toddler, the main character learns to survive in the woods of war-torn Eastern Europe during World War II. With the survival skills she learns from her kidnapper, and against heart-wrenching odds, she helps to hide and to save Jewish families from Nazi predators by using the resources of the forest. Her true identity is revealed in an ironic twist. Is her fate sealed?
