"In 1943 Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, teenage Hanneke--a 'finder' of black market goods--is tasked with finding a Jewish girl a customer had been hiding, who has seemingly vanished into thin air, and is pulled into a web of resistance activities and secrets as she attempts to solve the mystery and save the missing girl"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary / Annotation
Love this book! submitted by kecolyer on July 19, 2019, 2:44pm This book is an incredibly quick read and it's definitely worth the hype that it has received. It deals with the Nazi occupation with the Netherlands, and how the black market, resistance, and Jewish underground communities operated. This is one of the most well-researched YA Historical fiction novels that I have read.
