An explosive, fast-paced thriller set in Nazi Germany, perfect for readers who enjoyed THE BOOK THIEF.'It's terrifying and incredible to think how much of this story is true' Elizabeth Wein, author of CODE NAME VERITY.

With the full might of the ever-powerful Nazi party on her tail, it is a race that will risk everything she has and change her life forever...
Grabs the reader from its first paragraph.... [A] remarkable book ( Jewish Book Council)
I'm in awed envy of the daring with which Anne Blankman plunges into her difficult and sensitive subject matter. To read Prisoner of Night and Fog is to be immersed in a breathtaking evocation of Munich in the 1930s, where life is ordinary and skin-crawling by turns, and in the painful, hopeful story of one young girl's awakening conscience. It's terrifying and incredible to think how much of this story is true (Elizabeth Wein, author of CODENAME VERITY)
A tremendously cleverly constructed and terrifically compelling story that puts you right back into History - I read this one obsessively and felt every single moment ( www.lizlovesbooks.com)
I haven't liked a historical fiction novel quite this much since Elizabeth Wein's Rose Under Fire. Prisoner of Night and Fog is completely absorbing. It's well-written and clever, and the sort of book that lingers in your thoughts well after the final pages ( www.realmoffiction.blogspot.co.uk)
Completely engrossing ( Publishers Weekly (starred review))
