YA Review: Escape to The Hiding Place

Reviewed by: Shauna Jenkins
Genre: YA, Adventure
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers
Publication Date: October 2012

Patrick and Beth arrive in World War II Holland in the farm country. They must smuggle a baby by bicycle into the capable hands of Corrie ten Boom at her home in Haarlem. Along the way they hide from Nazi soldiers, meet a Russian surgeon forced into service by the Germans, and encourage two Jewish children who haven’t been outside in over three years. The children learn to appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of everyday people who helped the Jews.

This book is an enjoyable read for all ages. I enjoyed reading it as much as my daughter did. It’s a fast paced adventure with lots of action, but at the same time it’s very tame and safe for even young ears. I love that it includes a lot of important historical information and even a hero of mine, Corrie Ten Boom for the kids to learn about.

Rated G: appropriate for all ages
