It is December 1941, and German soldiers occupy Piet’s hometown of Sluis, Holland. Piet dreams of the end of the war, when he will be able to skate in the Elfstedentocht, a two-hundred-kilometer skating race through the waterways of the Netherlands. Then he finds himself in a more important race-he is asked to help an endangered classmate and her younger brother skate across the border to Belgium. Based on a true story. Afterword.
