KIRKUS REVIEW

On October 27, 1940, Petros is worried about completing a map of Australia in time for school the next day, but that night the sirens announce the beginning of war and an Occupation experienced largely as a struggle against starvation. Four years later -- the streets ringing with cries of ""Hitler is kaput,"" -- Petros emerges as a ""grown man of fourteen"" and the reader from a compassionate, maturing experience.
