Ashes

Amazon.com Rating:

Berlin, 1932. Thirteen-year-old Gabriella Schramm's world is slowly, but steadily, crumbling as Adolf Hitler rises to power. The only thing that soothes Gabriella is her favorite pastime-reading. But then her country's tensions rise, the streets fill with soldiers, Gaby's sister's boyfriend raises his arm in a heil Hitler salute, and a family friend -- Albert Einstein -- flees the country. And her only solace -- her books -- come under attack. Will Gaby have to leave behind the stories -- and the life -- that she has always loved?

"From the opening quote, by Heine -- 'Where they burn books, they will end by burning human beings' -- the personal and the political history will haunt readers." -- Booklist
