Originally published in German in 1991, this book depicts the dilemma of a young girl who leaves the German Democratic Republic before the Fall of the Wall in 1989, and her feelings thereafter. It brings to life the situation for people in the GDR at this historical period in the 20th Century. Delivered in clear and simple language, it appeals to young people dealing with the everyday problems of school life, friendship, split families and anxieties about the future. This book can be used in conjunction with the German novel by students of A Level German, or simply read by those wanting to gain an insight into life before and after 'Die Wende' in the former GDR.
