Malka Mai is a young Jewish girl. Her mother, Hannah Mai is a doctor. She has an older sister. Her life is fairly normal, until the Nazis start rounding up Jews. Malka’s family flees, and starts a journey too the border, where their family will be safe. But then Malka falls ill, and has to be left with a family, as she cannot go on. The family abandons her in fear, and Malka is left alone. Meanwhile, her mother and her sister search everywhere for her. this is a beautiful book about the Holocaust. If you like the books The Book Thief, Someone Named Eva, and Torn Threads you will really enjoy this book.
