Summary
  • An amazing WW2 survival story of a time and place largely unfamiliar to today's teen reader: of an unlikely hero squeezed between the German invader and the Soviet government itself. Impeccably researched: eye-witness accounts provide anecdotal detail to a chilling story of the triumph of bravery and defiance in the face of terrifying odds
  • An account of the Siege of Leningrad reveals the role played by Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich and his Leningrad Symphony in rallying and commemorating their fellow citizens
