"The Nazis have invaded Denmark. But Lisa and her family refuse to perish without a fight. Her father, a doctor, treats resistance fighters in secret, and her older brother Stefan enlists in the anti-Nazi movement himself. Then, Lisa joins the resistance to seek revenge, and she realizes the war her people are fighting is a lonely one ... and a deadly one. The Nazis are planning to send all of Denmark's Jews to concentration camps. Lisa desperately wants to prevent this. But can one person make a difference? One person can, and one nation did."--Back cover.

Review: Lisa's War

User Review  - Tori Simonson - Goodreads

I thought it was a very good book that told about a small part of the Holocaust. It told about the secret newspapers and how they had to stay away from the German soldiers. Overall, it was a very good book. Read full review
