Think of Anne Frank’s Diary and you’re halfway there. Hanna Michelson is a girl with big, ballet dreams. However, she’s also a Jew in WWII so none of that matters anymore. As the Nazis tighten their grip on Europe, all Hanna can do is watch as betrayal, cruelty, poverty and misjudgement tear down her hopes and dreams that once seemed so close, but now seem a lifetime away. Will she find any remaining strength and courage to spur Hanna on, or will she crumble and break under all the pressure?
I love this book because it is so descriptive that it makes you laugh and cry along with Hanna. I just wish it was a series instead of one book.
I recommend this unbelievable book to anyone who likes Anne Frank’s Diary and emotion, thoughts and feelings.
