In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her uncle Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.
Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.
And Gretchen follows his every command.
Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: That her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.
As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth - even if it could get her and Daniel killed?
From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she's ever believed…and to trust her own heart instead.

Was ist das??
No, after the mess this book turned out to be I don't think I would.
Have a less whiny protagonist. The other characters are pleasant enough, but Gretchen killed my buzz every time she opened her mouth (which was 90% of the time). She's not only stupid and suborn, but also arrogant and judgmental. I'm not sure if the other characters were indeed pleasant or were just pleasant in comparison to her.
Interesting, soft, nice. Her performance was ok, but the story made it hard for me to appreciate it :( .
Not for me, not sure if for anybody. After books like Rose under fire, Code name verity and The book Thief, it's very hard to appreciate this one. :(
