It is 1942 and the German army has laid siege on Leningrad. No one can get out, no food can get in, and the temperature has long remained below zero.

Weaving a tale of bravery, friendship and survival, this compassionate and uplifting novel documents Boris and his best friend Nadia’s attempt to outwit death in a desperate search for food behind enemy lines.
