Award-winning, critically acclaimed author Alan Gratz (Prisoner B-3087) returns with another gripping World War II story, this time about a spy in the Hitler Youth.
It's the height of World War II. Michael O'Shaunessey, son of the Irish ambassador to Nazi Germany, lives with his family in Berlin. But Michael, like his parents, is a spy. He joins the Hitler Youth, taking part in their horrific games and book burning, despising everything they stand for but using his insider knowledge to bring important information back to his parents and the British Secret Service. When Michael is tasked to find out more about Projekt 1065, a secret Nazi mission, things get even more complicated. He must prove his loyalty to the Hitler Youth at all costs - even if it means risking the lives of his family and himself.
Acclaimed author Alan Gratz delivers a heart-pounding, action-packed tale of political intrigue, betrayal, and survival.

"Excellent insight into WWII on German youth"
Yes, but there is a lot of violence amongst the boys and mature subjects. It's a good story to listen to as a family so you can discuss the teachable moments.
Realistic depiction and the narrator uses accents well. It's also very suspenseful so we wanted to keep going from chapter to chapter!
His use of accents and creation of a suspenseful mood.
There were several interactions between Fritz and Michael that were moving.
I loved this book, I loved it so much I would listen to it again.
We have listened to dozens of ww2 books for adults and children, this one was wonderful. We were on the edge of our seats. Excellent content and outstanding performance by the reader.
