If there is such a genre as young adult – historical – thriller, this book is it. I liked the East German perspective, one I haven’t seen often. I also really like the quotes that start each chapter. It might feel a little young due to the main character’s age, but the political concepts are suited to more sophisticated readers.
Scholastic has produced a book trailer, I hope it helps lead kids to this excellent book.
