Retell: Annemarie’s best friend, Ellen, is a Jew during World War 2. This means the Nazis want to kill Ellen and her family. Annemarie, her mother, her father and her little loudmouth sister, Kirsti, create a dangerous but hopeful plan to lead the Rosens to safety and freedom. Annemarie takes many risks that could end her life for her best friend. In the end of the war, both families are safe and at peace.
Relate: I think that this story shows the best example of a strong, loyal friendship, because Annemarie risked her life to save Ellen, and probably someday in the future, Ellen will do the same for Annemarie.
