The Lady is a Spy; Don Mitchell

The Lady Is a Spy: Virginia Hall, World War II Hero of the French Resistance (Scholastic Focus)The Lady Is a Spy: Virginia Hall, World War II Hero of the French Resistance by Don Mitchell
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A little light on some details, but then, this is written for younger readers. When you think about how many books have been written about people involved with WWII, it's sometimes surprising that there are new stories out there. Virginia Hall's story - from losing half her leg to playing such a critical role in the Resistance - is one that needs to be told, and one that at least one student at my school wants to read as part of her history research projecct.

Because I read an ARC I couldn't tell if the images were ENFYA worthy, but if they are the committee should consider this book.
