Telling Lies

TEEN GLE13638883

Author – Tricia Glensor

Age – 10+

This is the story of 15 yr old Simone in 1942. Her family are part of the French Resistance, and when she finds a NZ airman on their farm, they all step in to help.

This is a thrilling story, with heart stopping moments along the way. It’s also a great way to see what it was like being part of the Resistance in France during the war. Fear, Hope, Defiance and Bravery are all necessary to help this airman escape the Nazi’s.

Telling Lies was written after the author visited France to meet the last of a family who helped her father during the war.
