(From the publisher):
In the glorious springtime of 1941 Leningrad seems as though it will always be bright. And then, on June 22nd, Germany turns its forces against its old friend, and all at once Russia is at war. As the enemy army draws closer, winter approaches, and with it will come a darkness and hunger that will stalk the once-luminous city.
At fourteen, Georgi is too young to join the army. Still, he is determined to do something -- anything -- to help his family, and his city, through this terrifying time.
