More informationNewbery Honor Winner Susan Campbell Bartoletti explores the life of a heroic German youth who dared to stand up against the Nazis.
Bartoletti has taken one episode from her Newbery Honor Book, Hitler Youth, and fleshed it out into a thought-provoking novel. When 16-year-old Helmuth Hubner listens to the BBC news on an illegal short-wave radio, he quickly discovers Germany is lying to the people. But when he attempts to expose the truth with leaflets, he's tried and executed for treason.
