18. Resistance (Book 1) by Jablonski and Purvis

This is a young adult graphic novel about young people growing up in occupied France during World War II. A Jewish friend of theirs whose parents have "disappeared" is left behind, and they work to hide him and then get him to Paris (why they want to get him to Paris would give too much of the story away.) This was fast paced and a quick read, but extremely moving. The kids felt like real kids to me, and the art is beautiful without distracting from the story. I can see why this book has had so much good buzz. Recommended.
