In 1941, fifteen-year-old Madli hopes the Soviet occupation is temporary, but when thousands of Estonians are deported, she knows lives are in danger. She longs for the safety of her grandfather's farm.

Days later, the Nazis invade her country. Friends and family find themselves divided as they try to choose which dictator they'd rather live under: Hitler or Stalin. Madli is horrified by both, but how long can she remain neutral?

Every day brings new dangers and unimaginable decisions. In order to survive, Madli knows she can't fight the enemy, so she is determined to outwit them.

A lack of intriguing characterization and clarity in terms of setting and plot made this really disappointing for me. I was hoping it would be like a Ruta Sepetys novel from a different author but it was nowhere near that quality.
