It is 1943 in Amsterdam and teen Hanneke Bakker is trying to survive the German Occupation that took the life of her boyfriend.  She works at a funeral home and delivers black market goods to support her family.  When an elderly neighbor, one of her black market customers, seeks Hanneke’s help in finding a Jewish teen that she had been hiding but has mysteriously disappeared from her secret room, the Dutch girl is initially reluctant to help.  Hanneke’s growing awareness of the German treatment of Jews and the woman’s persistence, however, result in her decision to use her underground connections to help solve the mystery of the missing girl.  As she is drawn into the workings of the Dutch resistance organization, Hanneke must decide if she is willing to risk her own safety to find a girl she has never met.  A perfect choice for fans of The Book Thief 12+.
