From the Publisher:

Romania, 1989. It is unthinkable for anyone to criticize the leader of the country. The idea of a revolution is unimaginable to 13-year-old Flora Popescu, but suddenly everything she has taken for granted--her parents, her best friend, her daily routine--has altered. These frightening changes seem to be connected to the mysterious Daniel, who has joined her class. Who is he? Why is he lucky enough to wear blue jeans and eat meat for lunch when everyone else is so poor?

Flora's familiar world crumbles around her as she draws closer to the truth. Her father is in great danger. The secret police are coming, and only she can save his life.

From the Inside Flap:
