"It’s such a dark time, and young readers will be moved to experience the many losses and fears of the Jews from that era, building empathy. Well done" – Writer's Digest Book Awards Judge

"Author puts a lot of emotion into dialogue and differentiates the characters’ voices well. Good characterization in their movements, which brings interactions to life. We get tension between some, warmth and trust between others, and author conveys this without telling these things. Author has a nice mastery of showing, not telling, throughout." – Writer's Digest Book Awards Judge
