Review:
In Rumania in 1989 under the communist dictator, Ceausescu, life is harsh for thirteen-year-old Flora and her parents. Distrust of other people is a matter of survival with Ceausescu's minions everywhere. When Flora becomes enamored of a handsome new boy at school, she unwittingly betrays her father.

Through the frightening experiences of Flora, readers will learn of life during a little-known but exciting chapter of recent history. A first-rate historical novel.
