Review by Bo Bushnell.
This book is about a girl in WWII who is separated from her sister when the Nazis come to their village and they are captured. She is assigned to make bombs for the enemy. But can she find a way to sabotage the bombs? Read it to find out!

I think that this book is great. It is a little dark, so I would recommend it for 4th grade and up.

Review by Julia Beauchamp.
This book is about a girl who is captured by the Nazis and is taken from her sister. She is taken to a work camp where she must create bombs for Hitler. She does not like that she is helping the enemy, but one day she discovers a way to sabotage the bombs. Will she get caught, or will she escape and find her sister?

I really enjoy this book. I would recommend it for grades 5th and above. It is very exciting and teaches about World War Two.
