Note: 
A novel derived from a posiealbum - blank books that German girls in the 1930's asked their friends and relatives to write in. Using the poems, sayings, inscriptions, and illustrations from her mother's posiealbum as a beginning, the author has written a free verse novel about the year 1938, the year in which 12 year old Jutta and her family escaped from persecution in Nazi Germany. Photographs and historical information follow the story, which explores the desperate plight of German Jews with a minimum of horrible details.
