In October 1942, in Oslo, Norway, fifteen-year-old, Jewish girl, Ilse Stern is waiting to meet boy-next-door Hermann Rod for their first date. But Hermann won't be able to make it tonight. What Ilse doesn't know is that Hermann is secretly working in the Resistance, helping Norwegian Jews flee the country to escape the Nazis. The work is exhausting and unpredictable, full of late nights and code words and lies to Hermann's parents, to his boss... to Ilse. A 2018 Sydney Taylor Award Honor for Teens winner.
