IN THE PRESS- HANNAH GOULD
"Hannah Gould takes us inside the mind and heart of an extraordinary heroine. Hannah's harrowing story, grippingly told, is moving and powerful. Her transformation from sheltered young teen to fearless partisan fighter and leader is astonishing and inspiring. Hannah's a powerhouse and so is this book."
"Hannah Gould – a powerful story of the coming of age and survival of a teenage Jewish girl, as she is orphaned and caught up in the upheaval of WWII Nazi-occupied Poland. Instinct, lessons learned and recalled from a loved father and a loving family, and an incorrigible will to press on against a hostile environment, see her through this turbulent epoch. Her journey, in the face of unendurable losses, obstacles, and bodily injury, can only serve as inspiration especially to modern youth, whether in challenged or privileged circumstances."
