Genevieve's War - Patricia Reilly Giff
Thirteen-year-old American girl Genevieve has spent the summer of 1939
at her grandmother’s farm in Alsace, France. Then she makes an impulsive
choice: to stay in France. It proves to be a dangerous decision. World
War II erupts. The Nazis conquer Alsace and deport the Jews and others. A
frightening German officer commandeers a room in Meme’s farmhouse. And
when Gen’s friend Remi commits an act of sabotage, Gen is forced to hide
him in the attic—right above the Nazi officer’s head. Genevieve’s War
is a gripping story that brings the war in occupied France vividly to
life. It is a companion work to Lily’s Crossing, a Newbery Honor Book.
