A powerful story of hope, love, and imagination, set against the horrific backdrop of the Holocaust.
Two Jewish girls, Julia and Suzanne, are captured in Nazi-occupied Netherlands and transported to a ghetto.
Although their world views are wildly different - Julia is jaded and bitter, Suzanne naive and optimistic - they become each other's closest confidants as they experience the horrors of the journey to 'The Paradise Ghetto'.
The young women use a precious smuggled notebook to write a story.
As the book unfolds, it becomes the way they communicate their growing feelings for each other.
But there comes a point when reality can no longer be held at bay.
If the girls' names end up on the lists of deportees to Auschwitz there will be no return.
Is there a chance of escaping fate?
