Resistance is futile
VICTORY: RESISTANCE BOOK 3 by Carla Jablonski and Leland Purvis. First Second 2012.
Welcome to the waning days of the Nazi Occupation of France in World War II. This third GN in the series focuses on how members of the resistance collected intelligence and passed information on to others in an effort to win the war and save lives. Children, teens, and young adults also played pivotal roles as they could travel about relatively unchallenged. Colors range, letting readers know mood and tone and danger levels. Dialog is, of course, brief and to the point. Tie this one to the GN bio of Anne Frank, to CODE NAME VERITY, and also to DIVERGENT and other post apocalyptic novels where resistance to corrupt governments is key. <489>
