Projekt 1065

Projekt 1065

Alan Gratz
Thursday, Apr 13, 2017

Michael O'Shaunessey, like all his other classmates, is part of the Hitler Youth. He participates in their book burnings and horrific games, but he secretly despises everything the Nazis stand stand for. He has a dangerous secret that he must protect at all costs, he and his parents are spies. He is just playing the part so he can get insider information. Soon he hears about Projekt 1065, a secret Nazi war mission that he has to stop. But to do that he must prove his loyalty to the Third Reich no matter the cost...

Started out a little slow for me, but the last 150 pages I could not put it down.This was fast paced and very exciting. Gratz has a way of ending many chapters with cliffhangers, so you just have to keep on reading later in the book.

People who enjoy books about espionage and historical fiction will love it.

Hi, I have read this book multiple times and I really enjoyed it. When I read the review tags though I am shocked. I really do not recommend this book to kids for it is really violent and talks allot about really dark topics. Although this is an amazing book and should be on everyone's to read list this book should be rated 13+.
