Overview

For Freedom: The Story of a French Spy by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

A teenager transforms from a schoolgirl to a spy in this true story of heroism in wartime.

Suzanne David's everyday life is suddenly shattered in 1940 when a bomb drops on the main square of her hometown, the city of Cherbourg, France, killing a pregnant neighbor right in front of her. Until then the war had seemed far away, not something that would touch her or her teenage friends. Now Suzanne's family is kicked out onto the street as German soldiers take over their house as a barracks.

Suzanne clings to the one thing she really loves--singing. Her voice is so amazing that she is training to become an opera singer. As Suzanne travels around for rehearsals, cosume fittings, or lessons, she learns more about what the Nazis are doing and about the people who are "disappearing." Her travels are noticed by someone else, an organizer of the French Resistance. Soon Suzanne is a secret courier, a spy fighting for France and risking her own life for freedom.

I have to say this is a very interesting story. Hearing these words coming from one whom rarely reads ;that says a lot.

This book is one of my favorite historical fiction books. It makes me realize how good we got it and how much easier it is now then it was back then.

This book is so well and tightly written, I couldn't quit reading. It's such a different perspective to a war I didn't live through and had only heard about from an American point of view. I would recommend this book to anyone - young or old.
