It's World War II. Darkness has fallen over the world as the Nazis spread hatred, fear, and war--no one feels safe. But on a quiet city corner in the Netherlands, one woman fights against the injustice and darkness. In her quiet watchmaking shop, Corrie and her close-knit family risk their lives to hide Jews and others hunted by the Nazis in a secret hiding place they built into the old building.

But one day, Corrie and her family are betrayed. They're captured and sent in cattle cars to the notorious Nazi concentration camps to die. Yet even in that darkest of places, Corrie still fights. This is her incredible true story, now a visually stunning graphic novel for readers ages 8-12. Through more than 900 engaging, full-color panels, this real-life heroine comes to life--showing how even in the most desperate, loneliest, and darkest times, faith, hope, and love will ultimately triumph.
