The Klipfish Code by Mary Casanova

For your tween readers who want to learn all they can about the Holocaust, this story of the Nazi invasion of Norway will expand their persepective on  both history and sympathy.  Marit faces an internal struggle for courage and acceptance as she fights the enemy and for understanding of individuals whose choices can be life altering and confusing.  The effects of adult choices on children’s lives and the courage it takes for a child to grow into their own adult path is beautifully explored here.  Sadly we are still in an incomprehensible time of war, and the need for humane titles will continue.
