    Suzanne's world changes drastically when World War II becomes a reality for
    her with the bombing of her hometown, Cherbourg, France. Just thirteen
    years old, she dreams of becoming an opera singer someday. Now she and her
    family must endure being forced out of their homes, watching neighbors
    disappear, and helping friends overcome trauma. Then Suzanne is asked to
    help deliver secret messages which may help end the war, but what will
    happen if she is caught?

    Based on a true story, Bradley portrays this era of history well and
    includes many accurate historical details. She also doesn't shy from
    presenting some of the ugly realities of war. The characters in this novel
    show many admirable traits such as bravery and patriotism, and prove that
    anyone can make a difference. Both engaging and enriching, For Freedom is
    definitely worth a read.

    This is an incredible true story, written in a fictional style, of a young teenage girl who risks everything to regain the freedoms the Nazi regime took away during WWII. It is truly amazing what the human spirit is capable of achieving, espically when we reach out to God for that strength. We need more literature of this kind available to our children.
