The Extra is now published in paperback

With a nice bargain price

One ordinary afternoon, fifteen‑year‑old Lilo and her family are suddenly picked up by Hitler’s police and imprisoned. Just when it seems certain that they will be going to a labor camp, Lilo is selected by Hitler’s favourite filmmaker, Leni Riefenstahl, to work as an extra in her new film. Riefenstahl is beautiful, and charming to everyone on the set. But behind her smile lies the power to sentence Lilo and her friends to life or death.

Endorsed by Amnesty International UK as contributing to a better understanding of human rights and the values that underpin them.

Booklist says: Lasky has written a harrowing and deeply moving novel that focuses attention on a seldom-told story of the Nazis’ attempt to exterminate the Romani people.
