Munich, 1938, Nazi Germany. War is on the horizon. A timid Hitler Youth member contracts polio. Photographs she takes of fellow polio patients are turned into propaganda, mocking people with disabilities. She is now an outsider, a target of Nazi scorn and possible persecution. Her only weapon is her camera. This well-researched historical fiction novel unveils a seldom-seen side of the Nazi agenda. A sequel is in the works.

Praise for Risking Exposure

“...an engaging, well written, thought provoking book. It reminds us of the responsibility we have to one another.” “The story is true to history and would be ideal for a classroom studying this time period.” “...you find yourself think thinking of the young character, Sophie, long after the last page.” “... lets us see a world in which we know what happened, but Sophie does not yet. Our knowledge makes us want to read to the very last word--and wish the story would continue.”

“This book felt like I was reading a biography, the characters and story were all very real. Risking Exposure was certainly geared towards young adults, but this story captivated me from the beginning til the end - so it most certainly can hold the attention of an adult audience.”

“Ms. Moran is opening the door to this thought: if more (maybe only a handful more) people stood up and did small things too, could some of the awful suffering of this era been averted or lessened? And more poignantly, how about today? The book ratifies the importance of small actions done with love, bravery, and purpose.” “Sophie is still on my mind days after finishing this book.”

”...the book was a beautiful collection of thoughts, historically accurate bits of data, and a easy read in terms of the flowing writing style, but deals with a lot of heavy topics in a censored way. This is definitely a great book to study, for school students, as it's written in a simplistic yet effective writing style, and provides a brilliant coming-of-age story for all types of audiences.”

“There is so much to talk about in Sophie's story - - what we accept as normal, what society thinks of its less able-bodied citizens, whether one person can really make a difference... we read it for our own book club discussion next month -- and we're all well past our teen-age years, so that shows the power of this small gem.”
