They Went Left

Germany, 1945. The soldiers who liberated the Gross-Rosen concentration camp said the war was over, but nothing feels over to eighteen-year-old Zofia Lederman. Her body has barely begun to heal; her mind feels broken. Three years ago, she and her younger brother, Abek, were the only members of their family to be sent to the right, away from the gas chambers of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Everyone else... they went left.

Zofia's last words to her brother were a promise: Abek to Zofia, A to Z. When I find you again, we will fill our alphabet. Now her journey to fulfill that vow takes her through Poland and Germany, and into a displaced persons camp where everyone she meets is trying to piece together a future from a painful past. The deeper Zofia digs, the more impossible her search seems. In the rubble of a broken continent, Zofia must delve into a mystery whose answers could break her — or help her rebuild her world. This is a tour de force historical mystery from Monica Hesse, the bestselling and award-winning author of Girl in the Blue Coat.
