"Beauty has nothing to do with it," said Brigitta. "Men carry on the family name and manage the family business. Personally, I think I could do it better than most boys I know. In fact, I think girls are better than boys in lots of ways. They're cleverer, wiser and they don't fight so much. If it wasn't for men, Germany wouldn't have had this stupid war and millions of people would still be alive. I think girls should run the world." These are the words of Brigitta, forgotten figure in a forgotten family, but her words echo down the years as five children fight to right a distant wrong and bring to light a long hidden secret. Suitable for ages 10 and above.
