Summer of My German Soldier
During World War II, when her small Arkansas town becomes the site of a camp for German POWs, 12-year-old Patty learns what it means to open her heart. Although she's Jewish, she begins to see a prison escapee, Anton, not as a Nazi -- but as a lonely young man, a kindred spirit. And Patty is willing to risk losing everything -- even her freedom -- for the sake of their friendship. This thoughtful and hard-hitting novel has become a modern classic.
