Shadow on the Mountain: a novel inspired by the true adventures of a wartime spy

Espen, an average fourteen year old boy who loves to play soccer and go scouting and skiing, finds himself as a spy for the Norwegian Resistance. Espen starts out thinking that delivering underground newspapers is just an exciting adventure until the Norwegian Quisling Police working with the Gestapo come to his house looking for his scout uniform. Espen grows throughout the five year Nazi occupation as a valuable spy. Throughout the years Espen gains and losses friends as a result of the Nazis. He finally knows it's time to take all his information from his last dangerous mission and leave the country. One small mistake could jeopardize everything. Espen has grown to be so valuable to the Resistance that if he were caught by the Nazi's he would have to be shot by one of his own guides rather than allow the Nazi's to interrogate him. 261 pages, ISBN:978-1-4197-0424-6, Ages 11-13
