    Anthem

    Wiles, Deborah

    It's 1969. Molly is a girl who's not sure she can feel anything anymore, because life sometimes hurts way too much. Her brother Barry ran away after having a fight with their father over the war in Vietnam. Now Barry's been drafted into that war, and Molly's mother tells her she has to travel across the country in an old schoolbus to find Barry and bring him home. Norman is Molly's slightly older cousin, who drives the old schoolbus. He's a drummer who wants to find his own music out in the world, because then he might not be the 'normal Norman' that he fears he's become. He's not sure about this trip across the country, but his own mother makes it clear he doesn't have a choice. Molly and Norman get on the bus, and end up seeing a lot more of America that they'd ever imagined. From protests and parades to roaring races and rock n' roll, the cousins make their way to Barry in San Francisco, not really knowing what they'll find when they get there.

    Don't Tell the Nazis

    Skrypuch, Marsha Forchuk

    Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch (author of Making Bombs for Hitler) crafts a story of ultimate compassion and sacrifice based on true events during WWII. The year is 1941. Krystia lives in a small Ukrainian village under the cruel, sometimes violent, occupation of the Soviets. So when the Nazis march into town to liberate them, many of Krystia's neighbors welcome the troops with celebrations, hoping for a better life. But conditions don't improve as expected. Krystia's friend Dolik and the other Jewish people in town warn that their new occupiers may only bring darker days. The worst begins to happen when the Nazis blamed the Jews for murders they didn't commit. As the Nazis forced Jews into a ghetto, Krystia does what she can to help Dolik and his family. But what they really need is a place to hide. Faced with unimaginable tyranny and cruelty, will Krystia risk everything to protect her friends and neighbors?
