It’s not just a thousand miles that separate the two sisters. There is another gulf—between the traditional Jewish ways that one sister chose to leave behind in Warsaw, and her new, independent life in London. But as autumn of 1940 draws near, Germany begins a savage aerial bombing campaign in England, killing and displacing tens of thousands. She is recruited as a spy in an undercover operation that sends her back to her war-torn homeland.⁠

In her absence, her parents, sister, and brother have been driven from their comfortable apartment into the Warsaw Ghetto. Sealed off from the rest of the city, the Ghetto becomes a prison for nearly half a million Jews, struggling to survive amid starvation, disease, and the constant threat of deportation to Treblinka. Once a pretty and level-headed teenager, she is now committed to the Jewish resistance. Together, she, her sister, and a family friend living on the Aryan side of the city, form a trio. Against overwhelming odds and through heartbreak they will fight to rescue their loved ones, finding courage through sisterhood to keep hope alive . . .⁠

Filled with passion, emotion, suspense, and high-stakes, this is one of the most poignant and influential novels of our time.⁠

We cannot wait for our Book Clubbers to experience this incredibly powerful novel paired with stunning gifts that bring this moving story to life!⁠

On sale now through July 14th (or until we sell out), this is not one to miss!

The Young Adult Hint

​We are thrilled to share our July Young Adult hint, Charmed Summer! ✨⁠⁠

After spending most of high school as the quiet girl, she is ready to take some risks and have a life-changing summer, starting with her Anti-Wallflower List—thirteen items she’s going to check off one by one. She’s looking forward to riding rollercoasters, making her art Instagram public (maybe), and going on an epic road-trip with her best friend.⁠

But when number four on her list goes horribly wrong—revenge on her archrival—she’s certain her summer has gone from charmed to cursed. Instead of a road trip with her best friend, she finds herself stuck in a car with her rival driving to a magical convention. But as they travel down the coast of California, number thirteen on her list—fall in love—may be happening without her realizing it.⁠

Be swept away to a secret magical world, complete with cupcakes and tea with added sparks of joy, and an enchanted cottage where you can dance under the stars.⁠

Once upon a time, they were best friends but now they’re enemies! A heartfelt, energetic, and inspirational story with magical enemies-to-lovers vibes, this is not one to miss!⁠

A novel with two characters that readers everywhere will instantly fall in love with, we at OUABC are beyond thrilled for our Book Clubbers to experience this adorable couple and their California road trip!⁠
On sale now through July 14th (or until we sell out), this is the perfect addition to your summer reading list. Boxes are expected to ship at the end of July.
