A young Chinese girl growing up in the mid-1970s becomes part of a generation caught between traditional culture and new world influences. I recommend Little White Duck for 9 to 12 year olds. Review from Elizabeth Kennedy.
A Family Secret by Eric Heuvel. While searching his grandmother’s attic, Jeroen finds a photo album that brings back hard memories for his grandmother. She tells him about her experiences during the German occupation of the Netherlands and mourns the loss of her Jewish best friend, Esther. She believes that her own father, a policeman and Nazi sympathizer, delivered Esther to the Nazis and that she died in a concentration camp.
