"Remember who you are Milada."

Milada's grandmother says these words on the night the Nazi soldiers come to their home in Czechoslovakia.  But what do they mean? She is Milada, who lives with her mama and papa, her brother and sister, and her beloved Babichka.  Milada, with the sun-kissed hair, eleven years old, fastest runner in her school.  How could she ever forget?

Then the Nazis send Milada to a Lebensborn center in Poland, and Milada quickly discovers that holding on to her true identity will be the greatest struggle of her young life.
