Telling her experience of growing up in Italy during WWII, Levi invites the reader to experience her past through her lens as a young girl of Jewish faith. Perfect for younger readers, Levi's account communicates the collective fears and anxieties of living through the war -- in hiding at a Catholic boarding school, no less -- while still making room for the simple joys and miracles she witnessed during a complicated time where the world changed before her eyes.
