Genevieve's War by Patricia Reilly Giff - ESSENTIAL

Giff, Patricia Reilly  Genevieve’s War, 222 pgs.  Holiday House, 2017.  $16.95  Content: Language: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG.  

Gen is an American visiting her grandmother in Alsace, France when war breaks out in 1939.  Gen stays to care for her grandmother and is quickly caught up in the war when she hides one of her friends in their attic.  Invading officers steal food and livestock from her grandmother and one decides to sleep in their home, so Gen has to be courageous in order to save her friend.  

I loved this book.  Gen is a great character who is easy to love and the war setting was interesting.  The story line moved quickly and it was an engaging read.
