Another compelling chapter in the life of Felix, hero of the award-winning series of books that includes Once, Then, After and Soon.

Once I didn't know about my grandfather Felix's scary childhood.
Then I found out what the Nazis did to his best friend Zelda.
Now I understand why Felix does the things he does.

At least he's got me.
My name is Zelda too.
This is our story.
