Publisher's Summary

When Doctor Altman taught his 12-year-old daughter Mary about medicine, Abraham Lincoln, and freedom, he never imagined all three would soon be illegal, but living in Nazi Germany brought many unexpected changes to their lives. Doctor Altman is being forced to comply with the wishes of Hitler's closest officers, the Black Coats, and Mary soon discovers she must keep her opinions of freedom secret or she'll put her family's lives in danger. Their only hope is that the Allies win the Battle of Berlin and Hitler surrenders. After the war, Mary's family escapes to America, but once she gets there, Mary unwittingly becomes mixed up with the wrong people, endangering her family's American dreams. With the help of Raphael, an immigrant teen, and his father, who have a surprising connection to Mary's German childhood, Mary quickly learns that freedom doesn't mean doing whatever you want.

Filled with life lessons, a little romance, and plenty of humor and set against the historical backdrop of World War II, One Girl's Dream for Freedom is an engaging and exciting story of the difficult teenage years that readers of any age will enjoy.

What the Critics Say

"Ms. Adams' storytelling is terrific. Her unique use of the language had us so thoroughly enjoying the dark drama, surprising twists, and deep convictions of the characters that we are considering promoting it as a film in and of itself in the future." (Ted Rosegen, executive producer, Treasure Island Pictures)

"Anyone with an appreciation of history and questions about how kids got through such turmoil from Nazis and WWII will enjoy One Girl's Dream for Freedom." (Forbes Book Club)

    "Narrator or Book? I can't tell which is worse"

    The narrator doesn't read with any expression or inflection. Sometimes, it seems like she forgets to pause at a period. On the other hand, the book has an annoying amount of unnecessary description and misplaced modifiers. So I really don't know if it's the narrator or the author or a combination of both that makes me want to stop listening. I keep looking at the time left and wondering where the plot could go from here. The only thing that keeps me going is the money I spent and enough action to make the book somewhat interesting.
