My Family for the War [electronic Resource]

By Anne C Voorhoeve

Winner of the Mildred L. Batchelder medal for most oustanding children's book in translation.



Escaping Nazi Germany on the kindertransport changes one girl's life forever



At the start of World War II, ten-year-old Franziska Mangold is torn from her family when she boards the kindertransport in Berlin, the train that secretly took nearly 10,000 children out of Nazi territory to safety in England. Taken in by strangers who soon become more like family than her real parents, Frances (as she is now known) courageously pieces together a new life for herself because she doesn't know when or if she'll see her true family again. Against the backdrop of war-torn London, Frances struggles with questions of identity, family, and love, and these experiences shape her into a dauntless, charming young woman.



Originally published in Germany, Anne Voorhoeve's award-winning novel is filled with humor, danger, and romance.
