Description
In Hitler's Germany in 1938, playing and dancing to jazz is forbidden. The Hitler Youth patrol the night streets looking for anyone who breaks the rules. Albert is a member of the Edelweiss Pirates, a secret group of young people who defy the Hitler Youth. They play music, dance, and work against the Nazis any way they can. Albert's younger brother, Kurt, loves jazz and wants to resist the Nazis too. He longs to be a Pirate—especially when his Jewish friend, Fredrik, faces hateful treatment at school. But even if he's too young to be an Edelweiss Pirate, Kurt can still find a way to take a stand.

"Elvgren makes the events personal and immediate for modern readers, who may have limited knowledge of the Holocaust and the war. A powerful homage to young activists." –Kirkus Reviews

"Like Elvgren's THE WHISPERING TOWN, this Jewish story is told from the perspective of non-Jews. The author uses music to demonstrate the increasing loss of freedom suffered during the Holocaust. Her book also weaves a tightly crafted narrative, using first-person point of view and present tense, based on the powerful picture-book formula of threes." –Jewish Book Council
