In 1941, fifteen-year-old Madli hopes that the Soviet occupation is temporary, but when the neighbours, along with thousands of others, are deported, she knows that lives are in danger. She longs for the safety of her grandfather's farm.

Days later, the Nazis invade her country. Friends and family find themselves divided as they try to choose which dictator they'd rather live under -- Hitler or Stalin. Madli is horrified by either choice, but how long can she remain neutral?

Every day brings new dangers and unimaginable decisions. In order to survive, Madli knows she can't fight the enemy, so she is determined to outwit them.

This stunning debut from Urve Tamberg takes readers to World War II in Estonia, a country that vanished from world view for almost fifty years. The struggle to survive is brought to life through the eyes of a teenager who is determined to keep her family together against all odds.

A lack of intriguing characterization and clarity in terms of setting and plot made this really disappointing for me. I was hoping it would be like a Ruta Sepetys novel from a different author but it was nowhere near that quality.
