They call her the Arab of Warsaw.
Some say she's Jewish. A few know she's a girl. Most agree she's high on the Nazis' hit list.
One person believes she could become a hero.
It's 1939 in Poland, and Arab knows that standing up for anyone--especially her Jewish family--only paints a target on her back. So she plans to survive the Nazi occupation the way she always has: disguise herself as an Aryan boy, lead her street gang, and sell whatever she can steal.
But though Arab starts the war with the one goal of staying alive, others have different ideas for her. When a stranger asks for her help with a covert rescue mission, Arab has to make a choice. Trying to be a hero is a surefire way to get killed. But if she doesn't do it, who will?
Hard-hitting and unforgettable, The Girl Who Wouldn't Die is a story about survival, the necessity of resistance, and the hope that can be found when the world is at its darkest.
