Reese Witherspoon and her media company, Hello Sunshine, today announced The Light In Hidden Places by Sharon Cameron as the Reese’s Book Club December YA Pick.
Based on the real-life story of Stefania Podgórska, a courageous teenager who hid 13 Jews in her attic in occupied Poland during WWII. Forced to live with two Nazi officers on the floor below, Stefania cared for her younger sister, Helena, and worked at a factory full-time. Although the sisters risked their lives daily for the people they were hiding, doing nothing was never a choice for them. A gripping page-turner that captures the bravery and compassion of people making impossible choices in the face of horror.
