«In 1935, ten-year-old alex Maki, from Bainbridge Island, Washington, is disgusted when he’s tricked into becoming pen pals with Charlie Lévy of Paris, France –a girl. Yet, in spite of Alex’s reluctance, their letters continue to fly across the Atlantic, along with the shared hopes and dreams of friendship. Until the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the growing Nazi persecution of Jews force Alex and Charlie to confront the darkest aspects of human nature. From the desolation of an internment camp on the plains of Manzanar to the horrors of Auschwitz and the devastation of European battlefields, the only thing they can hold on to are the memories of their letters. But nothing can dispel the light between them».
