THE TIN SNAIL, by Cameron McAllister

tin snail

The story: Angelo’s father designs cars for the wealthy elite, but Angelo has an earth-shaking idea: they need to build something that regular people can afford. As the designers hole up at a farm outside of Paris to work on the prototype, the rumbling of Nazi tanks is heard, on their way from Germany after invading Poland. Eventually, rather than letting the Nazis steal their ideas, they destroy all the cars…except for one. Will it fall into enemy hands and help the bad guys win the war?

The library lady says: If you’re a boy who either (1) likes stories about cars, whether old or new, or (2) like historical fiction, you’ll like this one. And if you’ve ever wondered whether you’ll ever figure out a certain girl, you’re sure to relate!
