In 1930s Berlin, choked by the tightening of Hitler's fist, the Klein family are gradually losing everything that is precious to them. Their 15-year-old daughter, Rosa, slips out of Germany on a Kindertransport train to begin a new life in England. Charged with the task of securing a safe passage for her family, she vows that she will not rest until they are safe. But as war breaks out and she loses contact with her parents, Rosa finds herself wondering if there are some vows that can't be kept....
A sweeping tale of love and loss, with the poignant story of the Kindertransport at its heart, this is an exceptional accomplishment from one of Britain's bravest and most vibrant young writers.

I haven't read the book, but I feel like I have. Teal puts in all the voices and you get lost in the story and imagining the scenes.
This book is so well written it can be compared to the classics
I love the way the story weaves together and German words are sprinkled throughout. I got lost in this book and was thrilled it was long, but wished it were longer.
