Defy the Night by Heather Munn and Lydia Munn

Defy the Night

Defy the Night by Heather Munn and Lydia Munn

If no one will do anything, she’ll have to do it herself.

In 1941 France is still “free.” But fifteen-year-old Magali is frustrated by the cruel irony of pretending life is normal when food is rationed, new clothes are a rarity, and most of her friends are refugees. And now the government is actually helping the Nazis. Someone has got to do something, but it seems like no one has the guts—until Paquerette arrives.

Smuggling refugee children is Paquerette’s job. And she asks Magali to help.

Working with Paquerette is scary and exhausting, but Magali never doubts that it is the right thing to do. Until her brash actions put those she loves in danger.

My Take:  I am always curious to read books about people who did brave things during wars.  Like the people who hid Anne Frank and those who helped slaves with the underground railroad.  This book is interesting look at a young girl who helps smuggle refugee children.  This also examines the fact that you can effect others you love even if you are doing the right thing.  

I received a review copy of this book from Kregel in exchange for my honest opinion.
