The second book in the Resistance trilogy continues the WWII story of young Paul, a French boy with a healthy sense of defiance against the occupying Nazis and, perhaps worse, the French collaborators who turn in their own countrymen. In this atmosphere of distrust, people are stretched to their limits and pressed into unthinkable behavior. Paul's younger sister picks foolish and dangerous fights with the enemy responsible for her father's disappearance, while his older sister begins a relationship with a young German soldier in order to gather intelligence. Paul himself is driven into the mountains to join a small resistance whose days may be numbered. As with Resistance (2010), Jablonski never sensationalizes the historical facts, using them to create an informative backdrop for the believable tension growing between family and friends. Her writing is more than ably abetted by Purvis, who creates sharp, realistic environments but also captures the drama of fear and anger in the wobbly lines of a face. A fine addition to any historical-fiction collection. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
