This is a historical fiction book about an LDS teenager in Germany who tried to fight against the Nazi government. In general, the facts of the story are very interesting. Unfortunately, I found myself wishing to know just the facts rather than having to read the author's dry and pedantic attempt to fill in the gaps with her ideas of what may have been going through his head. It's not a terrible book. I just had to look past the pedestrian writing to enjoy the historically accurate parts of the story.
