It's 1942. Thirteen-year-old Korinna Rehme is an active member of her local Jungmadel, a Nazi youth group, along with many of her friends. She believes that Hitler is helping Germany by instituting a program to deal with what he calls the "Jewish problem," a program that she witnesses as her Jewish neighbors are attacked and taken from their homes. Korinna's parents, however, are members of a secret underground group providing a means of escape to the Jews of their city. Korinna is shocked to discover that they are hiding a refugee family behind the wall of her bedroom. But as she comes to know the family, her sympathies begin to turn. When someone tips off the Gestapo, loyalties are put to the test and Korinna must decide what she really believes and whom she really trusts. Filled with adventure, Behind the Bedroom Wall helps readers understand the forces that drove so many to turn on their neighbors and the courage that allowed some to resist.

This book is okay, not the greatest but not the worst. This book is factual fiction. It shows what children of World War II in Berlin, Germany had to go through. They had to be careful of what they said to who, even if the person was supposed to be their best friend. You couldn't trust anyone, and many had to learn this the hard way. if you hid Jewish people away from the Nazis and Gestapo, then you were penalized with death or horrible torture. Most of the time, this threat kept people from protecting others. However, in this book, it was not the case.
