Book Depository

Boy X

Germany, 1941. 12-year-old Karl Friedman is looking forward to joining the Hitler Youth, like all boys his age. But when his father is killed, his rebellious older brother Stefan shows him things that leave his faith in The Fuhrer shaken.

What does it mean to be a good German?

What does it mean to wear the mysterious flower sewn inside his brother's jacket?

Who is the real enemy?

‘A brilliant book full of breathtaking moments.’

Benjy Randall (age 10) lovereading4kids
