The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom

The Hiding Place

By Corrie ten Boom
Level 10

Corrie ten Boom tells of her incredible and courageous involvement in the Nazi underground and her ensuing experience in a Nazi camp. This intriguing, true book is packed with faith in God and character building messages. I suggest the book for ages 13+ because of the difficult, dire situations which Corrie faces, such as having to walk naked before guards and being cruelly treated. The material is not treated overly graphically or inappropriately, but it will be better processed by older children. Also, on pages 64-65, there is a sentence where it says the grandmother talks to her granddaughter about sex education the night before she is married. The conversation is not given—just referenced briefly and appropriately.
