About this item
It is February 1983, and Berlin is a divided city with a miles-long barricade separating east from west. But the city isn't the only thing that is divided. Ada lives among the rebels, punkers, and immigrants of Kreuzberg in West Berlin. Stefan lives in East Berlin, in a faceless apartment bunker of Friedrichshain. Bound by love and separated by circumstance, their only chance for a life together lies in a high-risk escape. But will Stefan find the courage to leap? Or will forces beyond his control stand in his way? National Book Award finalist Beth Kephart presents a story of daring and sacrifice in this three-starred reviewed Junior Library Guild Selection and Booklist Top 10 Historical Fiction for Youth.
In the early 1980s, Ada and Stefan are young, would-be lovers living on opposite sides of the Berlin Wall: Ada lives in West Berlin among rebels, punkers and immigrants; Stefan lives in East Berlin with his grandmother? and their only chance for a life together lies in a high-risk escape.
