This book is a really, REALLY great ride! The setting is WWII Russia during the siege of Leningrad. The plot revolves around 17 year old Lev who gets caught looting off a dead German soldier and Kolya a handsome young Russian army deserter who are both facing execution. Their only chance of survival is to find one dozen eggs for Colonel Grechko’s (Russian army) daughter’s wedding. On their journey there are twists and turns that I promise you won’t see coming and also a few scenes that are not for the faint of heart.
Please read this book. I’m itching to have some conversation about it!
