What The Night Sings by Vesper Stamper | Official Book Trailer

What The Night Sings is a fully illustrated young adult novel that delves into the seldom told story of life after the concentration camps. Follow one teen’s journey to rebuild her life after being stripped of everything—her parents, her music, her identity.


In the displaced persons camp where she is staying, Gerta meets Lev, a fellow teen survivor who she just might be falling for, despite her feelings for someone else. With a newfound Jewish identity she never knew she had, and a return to the life of music she thought she lost forever, Gerta must choose how to build a new future.


“A tour de force. This powerful story of love, loss, and survival is not to be missed.” —Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale.
