Jablonski, Carla. Resistance. First Second, 2010.

This story takes place in Vichy France, the "free" part of France that was initially unoccupied during WWII. The main characters take part in a resistance effort in order to rescue their family from the Germans.

My students are very interested in WWII, so this book will be a popular one. The illustrations are well done, and this book would be a great supplement to a unit on WWII.

Recommended for: teens and tweens
Red Flags: none
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
