Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018

This is a brilliant historical adventure that centres on a 15 year old Jewish girl left stranded in Nazi Europe. A mysterious man, mindful of her innate skills at deception and survival, places her in an elite Nazi girls school to help scupper plans for a devastating new turn in the war effort. This is a novel that doesn’t pull its punches and is probably not for the faint hearted but my eldest daughter loved the edginess and action taking place amidst a particularly vivid setting.


Shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award and the Branford Boase Award
Nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal

A teenage spy. A Nazi boarding school. The performance of a lifetime.

Sarah has played many roles – but now she faces her most challenging of all. Because there’s only one way for a Jewish orphan spy to survive at a school for the Nazi elite. And that’s to become a monster like them.

They think she is just a little girl. But she is the weapon they never saw coming…with a mission to destroy them all.
