"Now: Sixteen-year-old Alice is spending the summer in Paris ... When her grandmother passed away two months ago, she left Alice an apartment in France that no one knew existed. An apartment that has been locked for more than seventy years. Alice is determined to find out why the apartment was abandoned and why her grandmother never once mentioned the family she left behind when she moved to America after World War II ... However, the more time she spends digging through the mysteries of the past, the more she realizes there are secrets in the present that her family is still refusing to talk about. Then: Sixteen-year-old Adalyn doesn't recognize Paris anymore. Everywhere she looks, there are Nazis, and every day brings a new horror of life under the Occupation. When she meets Luc, the dashing and enigmatic leader of a resistance group, Adalyn feels she finally has a chance to fight back. But keeping up the appearance of being a much-admired socialite while working to undermine the Nazis is more complicated than she could have imagined"--Provided by publisher.

When Alice inherits an apartment in Paris from her grandmother, she begins to uncover mysteries that the elder woman took to her grave. Discovering that her grandmother had a sister is a shock but not so much as the evidence that this mysterious great-aunt Adalyn may have been a Nazi sympathizer. Chapters jump between modern-day Alice sleuthing for answers and WWII Adalyn living in Nazi-occupied Paris, and an incredible tale of loss, lies, and resistance unfolds. As Alice learns the secrets of her family's past, she must also confront the unspoken conflict in her family's presentâcoming to understand her mother's "dark phases"âand find the strength to face their issues head-on. Though at times the dramas of the present-day time line seem trivial compared to the atrocities of Nazi occupation, Adalyn's story is a gripping and heart-wrenching look at the strength of human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds, and it will surely keep readers eager to know both tales. A strong historical fiction debut. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
