Marieka parked her bike next to the fence as Miss Remi opened the door, holding a cloth to her cheek. “Miss Remi, what happened? Where are your chickens and pig?” Miss Remi pulled Marieka inside and shut the door. “The Germans came. They said they had a right to confiscate the pig and chickens to feed their army. I protested, but one of them struck me.” Caught up in a war she doesn't understand, sixteen-year-old Marieka Coevorden has been living peacefully in the Dutch countryside. With her friends and family at risk, Marieka wouldn’t dream of resisting the Germans. But everything changes when a wounded German soldier—a defector— needs her help. This tense historical drama delves into the intricacies of the Dutch resistance during World War II. Join Marieka as she summons the grit to defy orders and hatches a plan to do what’s right. This is a book you can’t stop reading—a perfect mix of drama, romance, and adventure.
