This book ,more than any other book about the Holocaust, showed me that you never know who you can count on in times of persecution and trial. Certain people in her life, like a sympathetic neighbor, help her and put their own lives at risk. Other people, with whom she appeared to share deep bonds, barely lift a finger to help her.
The story was fast-paced and the writing was witty and moving. It was a fascinating look at the life of a "U-boat" or a Jew hiding in plain sight.
