I collect books about world war 2 (all kinds, including fiction for all ages) and this book caught my eye as a potentially great book for younger readers. However, I was disappointed. The story was basic and not very well developed. The climax and ending was very lame and the book ended too quickly. The romance (teenage boy's attraction to a teenage girl) was annoying and over done. I do not recommend this book.
