Michael O’Shaunessey may be the son of the Irish ambassador to Germany, but in 1943- with his flawless German and ambition- he embodies the perfect Hitler Youth and quickly climbs the organization’s ranks. However, Michael is living a lie; he despises the Nazis and all they represent. He enlists in the Hitler Youth in order to infiltrate Nazi hierarchy and access information that will assist his parents in spying for the Allies. When a friend shows him plans for the new jet airplane the Nazis are developing, Michael’s photographic memory comes in handy for remembering enemy codes and formulas, and his covert activities turn deadly serious. (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award, 2018)
