Selected by Indie Booksellers for the October 2008 Indie Next List
“Sarah's Key is told from both the perspective of an 10-year-old girl whose family is rounded up during the Vel D'Hiv in France in 1942 and an American who presently lives in Paris. The heartbreak is real, the love is true, and the need to find out how their two lives are connected made this one of my absolute favorites!”
-- Sarah Galvin, The Bookstore Plus, Lake Placid, NY
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Indie Next List Highlights 2008
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring/Summer '09 Reading Group List
“Sarah's Key is the story of Sarah, a 12-year-old girl swept up by the police in the Vel D'Hiv roundup in occupied France, and of journalist Julia Jarmond, who is writing about the event 60 years later. This hauntingly powerful story will remain with you long after the last page is turned.”
-- Linda Walonen, Bay Books, San Ramon, CA
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '09/Winter '10 Reading Group List
“This emotionally intense story of a young girl who is caught up in a roundup of Jewish families in Paris during World War II is a powerful selection for reading groups.”
