Seventeen-year-old Jacob Todd is about to discover himself. His plan is to go to Amsterdam to explore the city and honor his grandfather who died there during World War II. But nothing goes as planned. Jacob isn’t prepared for love—or to face questions about his sexuality. Most of all, he isn’t prepared to hear what Geertrui, the woman who nursed his grandfather during the war, has to say. It seems that in the midst of terrible danger, Geertrui and Jacob’s grandfather’s time together blossomed into something more. Geertrui and Jacob live worlds apart, but their voices blend together to tell one story—a story that transcends time and place and war. This extraordinary Printz-winning novel, now available in a deluxe edition with French flaps, rough-front paper, and bonus material including a new forward by the author, will be treasured for years to come.

...truly memorable novel: teens may remember not only that they read it, but also where and when they read it. (The Horn Book, starred review)
