In Hunger Winter by Rob Currie, 13-year-old Dirk has been the man of the house since his father disappeared while fighting against the Nazis with the Dutch Resistance. When Dirk's older sister is arrested by the Gestapo, Dirk is fearful that he and his little sister Anna will be next. Desperate, Dirk and Anna run away to find his father. As Dirk leads Anna through the war-torn Netherlands, from farmyards to work camps, he must rely on his wits and his father's teaching to find his way. Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years; softcover.
