Its starts with a gift from Henrik's late father, which leads to a larger hunt for a special book with secrets inside.

I really enjoyed this one. Some great action, dialogue, and a piece of little known history as the backdrop for the action of the Young Underground. My daughter liked this one as well, but it wasn't her favorite. Together we give it a 3.5. This one was much more fit for the younger part of the audience for which these were written. Really a great series for young readers. My young reader has read through the series several times.

I am excited to find this Christian series set in World War II Denmark! They are for younger readers which pleases me because my younger sisters are always looking for exciting books to read. I was happy to know these books are christian, with good morals and message.

My only complaint would be that the conversations sometimes seemed like the 1990's rather than the 1940's. Don't know why- it's just a thought I had as I read the book.

In Follow the Star, Peter and Elise must go to a strange island with their uncle and with Henrik because Henrik's mother has gone missing. Will they be able to find Henrik's mother and her friend? Or will she be lost to them forever? I recommend this book to historical fiction lovers. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
