"One brave girl takes an extreme step to protect two abused children. When thirteen-year-old Mascha is sent to her grandparents' for the summer, she spends her days bored and lonely at a nearby playground. There she meets Julia and Max, two young siblings who are incredibly shy and withdrawn. Mascha soon begins to suspect that they are being physically abused by their father, a prominent member of their small community. She tells her grandparents and the authorities, but they all refuse to believe her. Mascha can't let the abuse go on, so she takes matters into her own hands. Already an international award winner, this beautifully written novel is a haunting and timely tale. "--Baker & Taylor.

this was a great book. It was the kind that really makes the readers mad. How all the adults in town were willing to turn a blind eye to the siblings that were being abused. Mascha's plan on saving them was dumb and not well thought out but at least she did something.
