Review by Bo Bushnell.
This book is about a kid in the Hitler Youth. But he is a spy for the Allies in Nazi Europe with his parents. His parents are the Irish ambassadors. He goes on a adventure to keep his secret safe.

I loved this book. I thought that the story was very good. It was a very thrilling book. The action is the thing that kept me reading.

I would recommend this book for all history lovers from grades 3+.

Review by Sam Hard.
This is a book about a thirteen-year old boy from Ireland living in Berlin with his diplomatic parents. But this family is no ordinary family. They are spies that are spying on the Nazi Germans. When a pilot crashes in a barn, the boy finds him first. He tries to save the pilot.
This book is really good because the author keeps adding twists and turns. If he did not do that, this would be very boring. This book is good for people in grades 5th-8th.

Review by Peyton Ritchie.
This was a good book, with lots of twists and turns.

It is about a boy who joins the Nazis to spy on them from the inside. His father is in International Relations and is the Irish ambassador to Germany. His father is also a spy.

It would be better for 4th and up, since it has some rough patches. I would recommend it if you read Percy Jackson, since it has the same writing style.
