"Anna was so busy with her schoolwork and friends that she hardly had time to notice Adolf Hitler's face glaring out of political posters all over Berlin. But one morning her father was gone, and then she and her brother had to sneak out of Germany. Reunited in Switzerland, Anna and her family try to find a home in several countries. Along the way they must learn new languages, new customs, and the special skills required to be a refugee. But Anna knows as long as her family stays together, that's all that really matters."

One of the best books of my childhood, read it countless times at the age of ten or twelve.

Seems to be stalled here. I've been promised twice that it would be moved on, but now my PMs aren't even answered anymore. So I bought  another copy so that the ray can be continued. I don't want to dump the ray as part two and three are following and I think part one is the most important.

It was fascinating reading this again after many many years. Strangely, the only thing I had remembered from reading it when I was about twelve was the argument about ironing sheets. And when I got to the bit where their new friend in France has the same games compendium but without dominoes I realised I had been holding that scene in my head all these years without remembering where it was from! Funny what details you remember.

Although pitched at youngsters I think this is really worth a read as an adult when you have more understanding of the historical background and what they were running away from. A child's ability to adapt and change and find happiness in each new situation is a lovely lesson for us all too. Beautifully written, a very engaging read.

I can't believe this book passed me by as a youngster it's just the sort of thing I would have really enjoyed reading. This was recommended to me by an adult friend of mine and then the same day I saw this bookring. Of course, I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters, large and small and was touched about the way she made the story touching, heartwarming and funny, as well as sad. Makes us appreciate what we've got.
I'm off to see if I can find the sequel.
I've PMed Kiwinengland and will get it on it's way as soon as possible.

I was in Berlin the other weekend, and on the streets are small squares of metal with the names of people who were killed when Hitler was in power.

I hadn't really thought about child refugees, this was an interesting story and one I would recommend to people. Interesting, I recall reading one chapter when I was about 12. I found the book on a friend's bookshelf and managed to read the part where Max is writing his not so brilliant French essays. Re-reading that chapter brought back lots of memories of my friend, her house, and my life when I was 12...so that was an added bonus of being part of this book ring.

First an apology, this book must have arrived as I was leaving for Thanksgiving and I must have stuffed it in my bag without journaling it. I am soooo sorry.

I finished it on my plane ride to my other sister's, two days ago. What a wonderful story. It had a few parts that dragged a little but it was refreshing to hear a story of a family who fled the Nazi's. I have read many survivor's accounts but they were mostly of people who stayed.

I enjoyed hearing how the children learned "you can't go home again" - how places you leave are never the same when you go back to them. It is wonderful that they learned early it is because they have changed.

I will mail from MD if I get the next person's address in time.

This well travelled book arrived to me today - safely! :D
Thanks so much arabd for sending and ApoloniaX for sharing this book with me!

Update:2010.02.14.
On the occassion of Valentine's day, I surprised myself relaxing, all day in the cosy bed with coffee, teas and chocos I finised this book. And I love it so much. I love its "easy" English language and I love the story as well.

It is remarkable story about escaping then settling down in a foreign place where getting used to the new customs meanwhile feeling happy, at least try to enjoy, to find good things in the life. The story with the sewing machine was comical. That was a typical male behaviour and solution :D.

I like the way as how the writer tells us about learning a language, to struggle, to rearn .. and finally somehow understand. [152p] "Look - said Mama, these things don't always happen as you expect. When I was studying music I sometimes struggled with something for weeks without getting anywhere at all - and then suddenly, just when I felt it was quite hopeless, the whole thing become clear and I couldn't think why I hadn't seen it before. Perhaps it will be like that with your French" ... It was like my English reading... I read this story continuously, even if I din't understand every word, but I understood the story. I dunno when I started to read this way, but it is a miracle to me, for ages I had been struggled and I hated English, but nowadays I can read books without translating into Hungarian.

Another memorable moments are as how Mama learns to keep house. [158p] "You have no idea - but no idea" - shouted Mama, "of the work I have to do. I get worn out washing and cooking and ironing and mending, and all you ever say is it isn't necessary!" .... "All I ever learned to do was how to play the piano! All I ever learned to do was.. [sigh].. as Mama, I also had/have start for almost everything from the beginning.

I did enjoy think book and think I might have missed quite a few things had I read it as a teenager. I'd be very interested to read the sequals as I'd really like to read of her experiences in England. Especially when she has to move around again.

Many thanks for sharing I'm sorry it took so long.

Have PMed the next person!
