This Newbery Honor book is enhanced by the narration of Kathrin Kana, who voices the facts and information as a compelling story and leaves the listener to gradually become aware of the implications of Hitler’s plans for Germany and the Hitler Youth. Hitler’s exploitation of Germany’s young bought their devotion to the Nazi cause while blinding them to the true motives behind his quest for power. Kana’s steady voice propels the narrative to its conclusion without diminishing the story’s brutality. A concluding slideshow of photographs (to be viewed on computer) adds an important dimension to the narrative and demonstrates a meaningful innovation for audiobooks. An added bonus is an introduction and epilogue spoken by the author, which add power to the presentation. L.D.H.
