Genre(s): Christian Historical Fiction

(My) Recommended Age Range: 8-15
This was a sweet short story about a young girl and how she helped free France from the Nazis. I like how Mrs. Kirkpatrick described things; I always knew what was going on. It was very short, and I would have liked it better if it was even a bit longer. However, if you are looking for a short story, I would recommend this.
