Good historical fiction, based on extensive research by Jennifer Nielsen about the knygnesiai, the book smugglers of Lithuania, who did everything possible to keep their culture alive during the Russian occupation of their Baltic homeland in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Audra is shy and sheltered child, and knows her father is away, but thinks he is a travelling magician. She has no idea that he is part of the underground resistance, and when the Cossacks show up at their home, she is handed a backpack and told to find a women in a distant town. Audra is helped by her schoolmates, whom she barely knows, gets lost and is rescued by a thief named Lukas, who helps her on her mission. She finds the old woman, who has a library of books, and who runs a small school for children in her basement hideaway. With the help of Lukas's friend Ben, they find that Audra has a talent for misdirection and they become part of the network , trying to stay one step ahead of the Cossacks. Some surprising plot twists. Well done.

Audra has been largely kept in the dark about the work her family is doing. Her father performs street magic. Her parents also smuggle books into Lithuanian in their language, something strictly forbidden by the Russians who are in control of the country. The story begins in 1893. Audra is given a package and told to run to Milda as her parents are arrested. She doesn't know how to read or write, but she is clever and makers her way. She learns about the book smuggling that has been going on and soon wants to get involved despite the dangers. She faces ethical dilemmas about turning over smugglers to free her parents, who have been sent to Siberia. An action packed read about the importance of books, ideas, language, and history for a people and what people are willing to do for their freedom. Audra along with her friend Lukas are willing to go to great lengths, face danger, and have to use every trick up their sleeve to fight for freedom. ( )

12 year old Audra gets the shock of her life in the 1890s when Cossack soldiers come to her farm and take her parents away. She runs off into the woods with just her father's backpack and the directions to deliver a package to a place she's never been before. This is the start of her book smuggling, and a life of fear and adventure, never knowing who to trust. Eventually she meets a boy about her own age, Lukas, who is able to teach her the ropes and watch over her. An excellent book that describes the time when Russia would not allow the Lithuanians anything of their own culture in hopes that they would assimilate into their culture. With turmoil between turning in friends and giving up the smuggling for hope of getting her parents back, the rights of individuals, and the importance of free speech and words, this is a great for discussion for grades 5-8.

I am so glad that the author decided to write this book. My family tree goes back to Lithuania, but the book carriers are something of which I was not aware. I was glad to hear the story! Unfortunately, I didn’t get a strong connection to any of the characters, though I did admire their bravery. I also thought the story felt a little repetitive, and I felt a bit bored. I will definitely have to read more about this topic. ( )
