Summary:
"Marie-Laure es una joven ciega que vive con su padre en Paris, donde él trabaja como responsable de las mil cerraduras del Museo de Historia Natural. Cuando los nazis ocupan la capital, padre e hija deben huir a la ciudad amurallada de Saint-Malo, llevándose con ellos la que podría ser la más preciada y peligrosa joya del museo. Werner es un muchacho huérfano criado en un pueblo minero de Alemania y fascinado por la fabricación y reparación de aparatos de radio, un talento que no ha pasado desapercibido a las Juventudes Hitlerianas. Siguiendo al ejército alemán, Werner deberá atravesar el corazón en llamas de Europa. Hasta que, en la última noche antes de la liberación de Saint-Malo, los caminos de Werner y Marie-Laure por fin se crucen. Destinados a ser enemigos y obligados a crecer entre la destrucción, los inolvidables protagonistas de esta hermosa y emocionante novela se convertirán en pequeños héroes cuya inocencia vencerá incluso a la guerra."--Descripción de la editorial.

"A blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure"--Provided by publisher.
