Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

Annemarie is living in dangerous times, Denmark, 1943, during the Nazi occupation. Soldiers line the streets and harass the citizens daily. One day, Annemarie’s family learns that the Nazis have decided to relocate the Jews living in Denmark. Annemarie’s best friend and her parents are suddenly forced to find a way to get out of Denmark. It is Annemarie and her family who are able to help.

This was an exciting adventure story with scary Nazis popping up on every page. I listened anxiously to find out whether Annemarie’s friends would manage to flee Copenhagen and sail across to safety in Sweden.
