The Extra, Paperback Book

Description

In this chilling but ultimately uplifting novel, Kathryn Lasky imagines a story of survival unlike any other. A deeply moving and unique story of survival by the award-winning writer Kathryn Lasky.

One ordinary afternoon, fifteen-year-old Lilo and her family are suddenly picked up by Hitler's police and imprisoned.

Just when it seems certain that they will be sent to a labour camp, Lilo is chosen by filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl to work as a film extra.

Life on the film set is a bizarre alternate reality and the beautiful, charming Riefenstahl is always present.

But Riefenstahl also answers the slightest provocation with malice and flaunts the power to assign prisoners to life or death.
