It's been two years since fifteen-year-old Roberto was kidnapped and forced to work in a German labor camp. After finally escaping, he's made his way back to Italy. Roberto is desperate to return to the safety of his family, but how can he turn his back on the war while so many people are suffering? Roberto joins the resistance movement, and smuggles guns and secret information to rebel fighters. Every mission takes him closer to home, but every mission is even more dangerous than the last. Will Roberto survive and make his way home?

This book is better than the first. Roberto gets back to Italy but he's not all the way home in Venice yet. He gets involved with the resistence to try to stop the nazis. Roberto also falls inlove with his new friend who is also involved with the resistence. The ending is sad but and yes I was a little disappointed because I felt like there were still questions that needed to be answered. Like did Roberto make it back home? What happens to him when all this is over? I think Napoli should write another sequel to this book. But if you liked Stones in Water you will love this sequel to it.

This book grabs you from the first page and wont let you put it down till you've finished. I didn't read the Stones in Water, which was a prequel to this book, ( I'm going to now) but you really didn't need too. This book stands alone as a great read for all ages. I have no hesitation in recommending this for readers age 12 all the way up to 112..

My son devoured this book. He had a hard time putting it down to get on the school bus as well as putting it down to go to bed. I was shocked because he is not a big reader and generally does not like fiction. He loved this book. I read it as well and enjoyed it. We actually read this before reading Stones in Water, but we both enjoyed it on it's own.

After the Stones in Water, which I loved, this sequel was a little disappointing. The ending left quite a few questions unanswered but considering the book it blends right in. I wish she would make a third to follow up what happened.
