Stephie, now 16, is living on the mainland to attend grammar school, supported by the Swedish relief committee, while the younger Nellie remains on the island with Auntie Alma's family. The worst part was, I wasn't reading this for me, I was reading this for my daughter and she wanted to read to the end just to know what happened to Stephie. You'll find yourself caught up in the lives of these two girls and the secondary characters. Like me, you'll be anxiously awaiting the translation of the final book in the series. This book is like a cheap knockoff, with a world war 2 setting thrown in. Stephie might lose the grant money that is funding her education. Her books have been translated into many languages and have won many prizes.

It's the summer of 1939. And back on the island, Nellie wants to be adopted by her foster family. Meet , author of Jeff Stone lives in the Midwest with his wife and two children and practices the martial arts daily. Thor includes details that demonstrate how Sweden, though technically neutral, was nonetheless greatly affected by the surrounding war, and she deftly balances the sisters' everyday concerns with the greater psychological aspects of being refugees. Overshadowing all is the protagonist's constant worry about her parents. Their parents end up in a concentration camp.

Letters from Vienna have stopped, replaced by periodic postcards from Theresienstadt containing exactly 30 words each. Her old friend Verra is growing up too fast. But life is only getting more complicated as she gets older. Now sixteen-year-old Stephie is going to school on the mainland. The story may be somewhat okay, but I was not impressed with the sexual attack on Stephie, and the vivid recounting of it. . .
