  A stunning, exciting story from acclaimed author Dan Smith – author of the Carnegie Medal-nominated Nisha’s War.  BERLIN 1961

Anja and Monika live opposite each other. They play together every day, with Otto the cat.

One night they wake up to bangs and shouts. Soldiers are building a huge barbed wire fence between them. A terrible forever wall that gets longer and higher until it divides the whole city.

On the East side, Monika is scared – neighbours are becoming spies and there are secret police everywhere.

It’s Anja who spots that Otto has found a way across. If he can visit Monika, then perhaps she can too.

But Anja gets trapped and there’s no safe way back . . .
