Publisher's Summary

Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen and her best friend Ellen Rosen often think of life before the war. It's now 1943, and their life in Copenhagen is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching through town. When the Jews of Denmark are "relocated," Ellen moves in with the Johansens and pretends to be one of the family. Soon Annemarie is asked to go on a dangerous mission to save Ellen's life.

Number the Stars is the 1990 Newbery Medal winner for most distinguished American children's book.

    "Awesome book!"

    The book was great because it had every thing a book needs. If you like your books with adventure and a bit of danger and suspense dotted here and there I would highly recommend this to you!

    "Wow"

    I wanted to listen to this book while I went about my day so I could multitask and go over this book with my son since it's one of the books on his summer reading list. I was sucked in and found myself listening in my car in my driveway because I wanted to hear what happened before I got out. Lol what a great "read".

    "A very good book."

    I love this book when I was a kid and I think I enjoy this even more as an adult. It is true the characters are not real but the war was and I think this will give kids the understanding of how things were back then.
