Maine Student Book Award Nominee, 2010-2011. Historical fiction book set in Greece during World War II, this book is based on the true story of the author's husband as a young boy. Petros lives the good life in a small Greek village playing marbles with his friends, climbing trees, tending his garden and his goat, until the Germans come to town. Now everyone is afraid and mistrustful. The German commander takes up residence in his house, and Petros and his family are terrified that the Germans will discover all their secrets. It's a great story line, but the writing is very slow. Students that stick with the story will be rewarded with an exciting ending.
