Winner Description: 
by Patricia Reilly Giff, and published by Delacorte
Winner Blurb: 

During her 1944 summer vacation in the Rockaways, ten-year-old Lily's best friend moves away and her beloved father Poppy goes off to war. Then Lily meets Albert, a young Hungarian refugee with whom she builds a poignant friendship based on shared loneliness, secrets and lies.

"The author skillfully evokes the sights, the sounds, deprivations and fears of the World War II home front in this psychologically complex, multi-layered historical novel. Lily is an engaging character, memorable for her impudence, her sense of humor and her vulnerability. The setting is unique, but the problem of overcoming childhood guilt is universal."
