Waiting on Wednesday #12

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It's a chance to showcase all the books we're looking forward to! 

This week I am really looking forward to an upcoming young adult historical fiction. Although I love historical fiction; rarely do I see an upcoming title that is YA and excitement-worthy! Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman has me very excited! I think the premise is creative, and I love books set in WWII era. I can't wait to read it ^_^

In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her "uncle" Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf's, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.

Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.

And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can't stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can't help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she's been taught to believe about Jews.

As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?

From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she's ever believed . . . and to trust her own heart instead.
Expected Publication: April 22nd by Balzer + Bray
