Can One Person Stop a War?
What would it feel like if you're town was invaded by Nazis and you and your family were in danger? This happened to Lisa.
Lisa is a Jewish teenager living in Denmark. When the Nazis invade her town her brother joins an anti-Nazi movement and her father, a doctor, starts secretly treating resistance fighters. Lisa also joins the anti-Nazi movement. Many tragedies happen to her as she struggles to stay alive. You see the tragic things that the war made people do including escaping their birth country.
I loved the book even though it was sad and complicated. Sometimes I was shocked with the information and it left me somewhat devastated but taught me a lot. It is full of excitement, drama and fictional history. If you like Holocaust history that is somewhat fictional this is a book for you. Carol Matas is a wonderful author. She also wrote After the Warand Daniel's Story.
