    We’re so used to having our freedom. Have you ever wondered what you’d do if a time machine took you back to 1938 Nazi Germany – and you were only fourteen years old? If you were a German, you’d automatically be considered one of Hitler’s Youth (Hitlerjugend), expected to contribute your support to the Fatherland (Germany). Early in this story, Scharfuhrer Werner Mueller (Master Sergeant for Hitler’s Youth), instructed Sophie Adler to photograph a tiny puppy whose hind leg was deformed. They used photography to show the weak from the strong. The term for the weak was ‘useless eater’. As nature would have it, even its mother pushed it away so the healthy pups could nurse. The deformed pup was a ‘useless eater’.When Sophie contracted polio and had to be hospitalized, she began to worry that she too would be considered a ‘useless eater’. When she had regained some strength, she was able to resume photography – a way to show herself useful for the Fatherland. While she was recuperating, she discovered that her father, owner of a bakery and also a photographer, was being watched – they opened and read his letters before she could have them. Eventually, he was arrested and formally charged with treason. Sophie’s father had always taught her to follow her heart and tell the truth, the full story, through her photography. She prayed for courage to do just that. She began taking pictures that would show the true story and the ugliness of Nazi Germany.Although Sophie Adler is fictional, she feels very real to me. She inspires me to seek justice and do the right thing regardless of the cost. The novel is geared toward ages 11 – 18, but as an adult, I found myself enjoying it very much. The pace of the story quickly carries the reader from chapter to chapter (several months of Sophie’s life) with no time for boredom to set in. The story is true to history and would be ideal for a classroom studying this time period. Discussion questions can be found on the author’s webpage. The ending didn’t give as much closure as I would have liked. I understand from the author that there will be a sequel to Risking Exposure. I rated the novel at 4.5 out of 5.

    Risking Exposure is an amazing book about a girl named Sophie who is faced with an impossible decision during the Nazi’s rise to power in Germany.Within a few paragraphs I was enveloped in Sophie’s world. Moran’s smart and addictive writing made the story impossible to put down. The historical aspect of Nazi Germany, almost prehistoric seeming medical treatment, and Sophie as a young adult were woven together seamlessly.Even more than just being a good read, I think that Risking Exposure would be a perfect book to introduce WWII and the Holocaust to a younger audience. So many of the books concentrate on only the Jewish aspect of WWII that it is easy to forget that this was a dangerous time for the general German populace as well. (Of course this is not to detract from the Jewish aspect). I feel that studying social history from all angles is extremely important and that Risking Exposure would be an ideal way to do this. The book isn’t graphic and while there is some violence it isn’t anything more than what is shown on the evening news. Perfect for a younger audience who you wouldn’t want to give the impression that the entirety of a population at a specific time was evil. Instead, Risking Exposure shows that there are good and bad people in every situation.I couldn’t recommend or praise this book more. Risking Exposure is an excellent read, both for pleasure and education.
