The Faithful Spy

 by John Hendrix. NY: Abrams Books, 2018.  

 

John Hendrix tells the story of Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was torn between the love of his country and the love of his God. Hendrix beautifully tells the story of Germany, Hitler's rise to power, his truly evil plot against humanity and Bonhoeffer's struggle to keep his family safe while hoping to stop Hitler who seemed unstoppable.

 

Starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal, and School Library Connection.

 

Note: Hendrix visually and verbally relays the atrocities of WWII, the holocaust, Kristallnacht, and racism.
