    3. Set in stark, conflicted Norway just prior to, and during, Nazi occupation, this is a sobering account of ordinary lives turned upside down. As fiction based on reality, the cruelty and horror of the Nazi oppression is evident on every page, as individuals and families strive to survive, and sometimes resist. Sixteen-year-old Finn Gunnersen’s father is a civilian pilot, as is his close friend, Mr. Larson. Their two boys, Finn and Loki, are also best friends. Finn’s father flies his plane to [...]

There's a fair bit of grit and realism which is refreshing (boys especially I think would enjoy this book because of it), with the token deaths added as well. (view spoiler)[The dog dies =( Cute plot device [...]


    6. World War II is raging as Finn's father flies off to join the resistance. Six months later Finn's dad is dead and the Nazis have invaded Norway. It is a confusing time when nobody knows who is on whose side and it is never safe. Finn treats the whole thing as a bit of a lark until he is arrested and spends time in the Nazi fortress where he witnesses terrible things and realises the real dangers of the war. After that he is keen to join the resistance and make a difference for his village. He ge [...]


    7. I extremely liked this book, even though I am a girl, the story line was extremely good and I really got to understand and like the characters!


    8. I couldn't really get on with it, I sort of got immune to the action because it was on the go all of the time. and why is it always the animals that die?
