In 1943, when the Germans plan to send all Danish Jews to prison camps, Peter and Elise, eleven-year-old twins, face danger trying to help their Jewish friend Henrik escape to Sweden.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
The clock was ringing right in his ear, from somewhere under the pillow. It almost felt like an electric shock, and eleven-year-old Peter Andersen jerked up, reached under the pillow, and snapped off the alarm. He sat in bed for a minute, caught his breath, and listened to make sure his parents or sister weren't making any noises. All quiet, except for his dad's soft, rattyle snoring from down the hall. It had to be almost midnight, the time he had set his alarm to go off.

Publisher Book Description:
On A Black Night In Denmark, Evil Prowled The Streets ....
For eleven-year-old Peter Andersen and his twin sister Elise, living in the city of Helsingor, Denmark during World War II means German soldiers in the streets, German patrol boats in the harbor, and German fighter planes in the sky. Everyone is nervous, especially their Jewish friend Henrik and his parents.

Before the invasion, no one in Denmark cared whether a person was Jewish. Now the Nazis are secretly rounding up all of the Jews who live in Denmark and sending them to prison camps in Germany. Suddenly, Henrik and his family must escape!

Sweden offers the only place of refuge, but with soldiers lurking the streets and Nazi boats patrolling the sea, only a miracle can get the Jews to safety!
