My Brother's Shadow (YA)
#10 Book Read in 2012
My Brother's Shadow (YA)(
Moritz is trying to keep his life and family somewhat together. His older brother is fighting the war for Germany but Moritz's mother is speaking out and campaigning against the war and Hitler. Moritz tries to provide food for his family and tries to get a job going as a journalist. He falls in with a bad crowd, his brother's old crowd, and struggles to keep to what he thinks is the right thing to do.
This book had action, romance and was a good, quick read. There is a lot of information about the war in this book but the writing style is user friendly and the length (just over 200 pages) will make it a viable reading option for even reluctant readers. I enjoyed this book.
I borrowed this book from our town library.
