On the night Nazi soldiers come to her home in Czechoslovakia,
Milada's grandmother says, "Remember, Milada. Remember who you are.
Always." Milada promises, but she doesn't understand her
grandmother's words. After all, she is Milada, who lives with her
mama and papa, her brother and sister, and her beloved Babichka.
Milada, eleven years old, the fastest runner in school. How could
she ever forget?Then the Nazis take Milada away from her family and
send her to a Lebensborn center in Poland. There, she is told she
fits the Aryan ideal: her blond hair and blue eyes are the right
color; her head and nose, the right size. She is given a new name,
Eva, and trained to become the perfect German citizen, to be the
hope of Germany's future--and to forget she was ever a Czech girl
named Milada.Inspired by real events, this fascinating novel sheds
light on a little-known aspect of the Nazi agenda and movingly
portrays a young girl's struggle to hold on to her identity and her
hope in the face of a regime intent on destroying both.
