Summary
In her first novel, beloved author Shirley Hughes presents a World War II adventure proving that in extraordinary circumstances, people are capable of extraordinary things. Italy, 1944: Florence is occupied by Nazi forces. The Italian resistance movement has not given up hope, though--and neither have thirteen-year-old Paolo and his sister, Costanza. As their mother is pressured into harboring escaping POWs, Paolo and Costanza each find a part to play in opposing the German forces. Both are desperate to fight the occupation, but what can two siblings--with only a bicycle to help them--do against a whole army? Middle-grade fans of history and adventure will be riveted by the action and the vividly evoked tension of World War II
Summary
When their mother reluctantly joins the Italian Resistance against Nazi occupying forces in World War II Florence, young Paolo and his sister, Costanza, devise a clever way to use their bicycle to assist the movement
