Publisher Comments:

Meggie Dillon's life has been turned upside down by World War II. Meggie's father has announced that they must help the war effort and

move to Willow Run, Michigan, where he'll work nights in a factory building important war planes that will help fight the enemy in Europe. Willow Run will be the greatest adventure ever, Meggie thinks. There she meets Patches and Harlan, other kids like her from far-off places whose parents have come here to do their part in the war. And there she faces questions about courage, and what it takes to go into battle, like Eddie, and to keep hope alive on the home front.

Synopsis:

A thrilling, action-packed story of heroism and perserverance of the Norwegian resistance during WWII.

Synopsis:

The year is 1942, and Norway is under Nazi occupation. Despite her grandfathers

of schoolteachers for their refusal to teach Nazi propaganda to Norwegian schoolchildren.

Set on an island of fishing trawlers, this novel is about risks taken, secrets kept,

and questions about whom to trust.
