Sara has never been out of the tiny town of Hope, Ontario, where she has been in an orphanage all her life. After a fire destroys the orphanage, clues about her parentage--a medical certificate and a Star of David--lead her to Germany. Despite her fears--she doesn't speak the language, she knows no one in Germany, and she's never been on an airplane--Sara arrives in Germany determined to explore her newly discovered Jewish heritage and solve the mystery of her parentage. What she encounters is a country still dealing with the aftermath of the Holocaust. With the help of a handsome, English-speaking German boy, she discovers the sad facts of her mother's brief existence and faces the horrible truth about her father. Ultimately, the knowledge she gains opens up her world and leads her to a deeper understanding of herself.

Part of the SECRETS--a series of seven linked novels that can be read in any order.

Kathy Kacer is the perfect edition to the Secret series. If you didn't know yet, many of her books (I think all) are about the Holocaust and World War II. This book is about an 18 year old girl named Sara, who discovers that she's Jewish, and that her family was living in Germany during World War II. You can probably put the pieces together from there. Sara is the mature girl out of all the 7 (and the oldest), so this book is a bit less wacky and more about how much she learns about herself and her unknown family. There is also a bit of a plot twist in the end. xD
