Just as the Nazis are rising to power, Helmuth Hübener, a German schoolboy, is caught up in all the swashbuckling bravado of his time. The handsome stormtrooper uniforms, the shiny jackboots and armbands, the rousing patriotism all serve to draw him into this bright new world full of promise and hope. In the beginning his patriotism is unwavering. But every day the rights of people all over Germany are diminishing. Jews are threatened and their businesses are being destroyed. The truth has been censored, and danger lurks everywhere. Anybody can turn on you. The world has turned upside down: Patriotism means denouncing others, love means hate, and speaking out means treason. How much longer can Helmuth keep silent?

Told in flashback, Newbery Honor Book author Susan Campbell Bartoletti magnificently explores the life of a heroic German youth who dared to stand up against the Nazi regime.

    " a world war II book. "

    " This book fostered one of our most talkative book club discussions to date. At book club we watched a documentary on the life of the main character, and the documentary made me like the book even more. It really is a remarkable tale of a boy who dared go against everything society said was okay but that he knew wasn't. Wouldn't you like to look back on your life and say you were able to do the same...even to the point of risking your life? Wonderful book, very easy read, and great discussion. "

    " A sad book. It shows the courage a boy can have and how terrible the Nazi's were from inside the German borders. "
