Cut off by the Iron Curtain
This epic tale extends across generations and unfolds against the
backdrop of a dangerous Cold War Berlin. This historically accurate,
action-packed, three-books-in-one edition features three generations of
resourceful teens living in the shadow of the Berlin Wall.
Candy Bombers: In spring 1948, teenage cousins Erich and Katarina are
simply trying to survive in war-ravaged Berlin when the Soviets blockade
the east side of the city, isolating its citizens---and starving
them---behind the Iron Curtain.
Beetle Bunker: In August 1961, Sabine discovers a forgotten underground
bunker. Though she first uses it to escape her crowded home, she soon
realizes her hideout could possibly take her family under the wall to
West Berlin and freedom!
Smuggler's Treasure: In spring 1989, life is good in West Germany, and
even the Cold War seems to be thawing in the warmer weather. But as
Liesl works on a class project about the history of the wall, she
stumbles onto a startling secret no one will talk about.
