Riassunto: Egon Katz, a baker's apprentice running for his life because he is a seventeen-year-old Jew in Nazi Germany and who has not seen his family in more than a year, heads for the Danish border, where he confronts his greatest danger.

From Booklist: Gr. 7-10. During the final weeks of 1938, Kristallnacht echoes in the recent memory of 17-year-old Egon Katz, a Jewish baker's apprentice. Delivering pastries one rainy afternoon, Egon crashes his rickety scooter into a high-ranking Nazi's car. Sentenced initially to pay a fine of 80 marks, Egon soon learns that the Gestapo are pursuing him. He packs a few belongings and turns to his extended family for help. In a story that becomes ever more suspenseful, Egon encounters barriers in his increasingly desperate efforts to leave Germany. His refined appearance denies him exit into Holland with a group of Jewish men disguised as coal miners. However, through his brother's help, Egon makes his way to the Danish border, where, again, he narrowly escapes the Gestapo. Ray uses Egon's memories as a device to tell a second story, that of Egon's family and his past. Skillfully layered through this thrilling, sparely written story of a teenager's struggle for survival are details of Jewish life and culture, as conducted in the face of Nazi persecution. As an account of an individual boy's experiences during the Holocaust's beginnings, the book effectively personalizes that time and place for young adult readers. In an afterword, Ray explains that her book fictionalizes her father-in-law's scooter accident and his subsequent escape from Hitler's Germany. Merri Monks
