This book is amazing! It is so empowering to see how Irene handles her situations during the war. It is super inspiring to read her story and learn how she saved so many lives. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books about the holocaust. I could not put this book down!

I listened to the audiobook and totally forgot it was a “juvenile” book. The book is so beautifully told and the experiences so real, I feel like I’m right there with Irene. I will be recommending this book to my granddaughter as she starts to study WWll. I’m happy it was recommended to me, and very happy to recommend it to others

I cannot stop talking about this book. It's devastating, impactful, and amazing. One of the best Holocaust memoirs I have ever read, especially because I don't often come across the story of a rescuer.

I have read this book more than once. It is the story of a truly righteous woman who risked so much to save her Jewish friends, She was a pure and courageous soul. This is a must-read.
