Read from March 17 to 18, 2016

Really solid middle grade book about the occupation of Denmark by the Nazis. I think it gives just enough info to give kids a glimpse into the terror of the time, without being really heavy handed. I'm impressed with how Lowry uses stories of family and friendship to give insights into the historical time. Also, the bravery of the main character is inspiring, without being out of reach for a real kid to aspire to.
