The Doktor's Daughter by Nancy McDonald

Happy Tuesday. Yesterday I shared Girl on The Run and today the story continues with The Doktor's Daughter by Nancy McDonald.

Book Description:

Tragedy brings Amelie Meyer back to Berlin. It's been four years since she was forced to flee her home, leaving everything behind -- including her father.

Transformed by the Nazis, Berlin is now a drab and dangerous city, and Amelie can't wait to return to Paris. But before she can leave, she finds herself swept up in an intrigue that makes her question everything she thinks she knows about her father. Is he a traitor or a hero? The only way to find out is to put her own life on the line.
This book is a wonderful continuation of Girl on the Run. It can be read as a standalone but I would recommend to read the books in order. They are short books at under 200 pages each and are impossible to put down. The books are written as middle grade fiction but as an adult, I loved them. At the end of the book, the author explains what is history and what is fiction. It is an ideal book to learn about the environment in Berlin while at the same time not showing the violence that could occur, making it more appropriate for younger readers. I’m amazed with Amelie’s strength at 17 years old and would love to read more of her story. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is one you should not miss, especially if you have a younger reader learning about WWII.
