When trapped or frightened, Esther sees windows --- and flying out of them --- as her only salvation. Young, Jewish and on the run from the Nazis, Esther is one of a group of children who manage to flee Germany for Belgium and then France at the beginning of World War II. Despite her perilous situation, she frets over her frumpy looks, is ridiculed by the popular girls and loves a boy who --- at the best of times --- treats her like a sister. As the war rages on and Esther bears witness to its horrors, her pain and isolation grow --- until only the highest windows bring the promise of release.

This was probably my favourite book from the high school level White Pine reading club. Great Canadian author, and excellent storytelling. Could not put it down!
