THE BOYS WHO CHALLENGED HITLER, by Phillip Hoose

img1193676

The story: Feeling that his homeland had caved in to the Nazis without any kind of fight at all, Knud Pederson and a group of friends organized the first group of resistance fighters in Denmark during World War II. This is the true story of the Churchill Club–a group of teen boys whose daring exploits challenged the rest of the country to stand up to the German war machine.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  Check this one out if you like true stories of teens risking their lives to make a difference.  Non-fiction at its best!
