Hedy's Journey: The True Story of a Hungarian Girl Fleeing the Holocaust

It is 1941. Hedy and her family are Jewish, and the Nazi party is rising. Hedy's family is no longer safe in their home in Hungary. They decide to flee to America, but because of their circumstances, sixteen-year-old Hedy must make her way through Europe alone. Will luck be with her? Will she be brave? Join Hedy on her journey-where she encounters good fortune and misfortune, a kind helper and cruel soldiers, a reunion and a tragedy-and discover how Hedy is both lucky and brave. Hedy's Journey adds an important voice to the canon of Holocaust stories, and her courage will make a lasting impact on young readers.

School Library Journal

"Bisson effectively communicates the high level of stress and danger, while also emphasizing the value of love and family. The illustrator’s color palette of gray, sepia, and a subdued dusty pink (for Hedy’s clothing) suits the historical time period. . . .should work well in a small group or one-on-one setting." - School Library Journal
