    There were moments while reading this book that I hated it but I couldn?t stop listening to it (read it on audiobook). As any narrative relating to the holocaust and being a Jewish family during the eve of WW2 there are moments that are very descriptive and sad . The story centers on...

    I love the tagline 'A teenagespy. A Nazi boarding school. Theperformance of a lifetime.' and was gripped by Orphan Monster Spy from the start. Orphan Monster Spy begins with 15-year-old Sarah on the run from the government following her mother's death. She meets a mysterious spy...

    This was intense and I loved every section of it. You thought the girls in your high school were mean? Think again. This was an interesting fictional perspective on the horrors of Nazism from a Jewish girl who "passes" and infiltrates a community of Nazi elites. Disclaimer: A few s...

    I was completely immersed in this story of a 15 year old Jewish girl who agrees to become a spy in the battle to defeat Hitler. I may be suffering burn out from reading too many books set in this time period, but this was a new World War II plot for me. The book begins with the murder ...

    While the style of writing and the narration isn't typically my jam, I am thoroughly impressed with the depth of research, worldbuilding, and sensitivity toward the portrayal of a Jewish girl in Nazi Germany. This is the opposite of The Girl Who Wouldn't Die, which I found to be an ant...

    I absolutely loved this book. It's fierce, spirited and exciting - and it combines two of my favourite things, early 20th century history and boarding school books. Sarah is a brilliant main character, and the situation the book puts her in (infiltrating a Nazi boarding school as a Jew...
