The summer that Patty Bergen turns twelve is a summer that will haunt her forever. When her small hometown in Arkansas becomes the site of a camp housing German prisoners during World War II, Patty learns what it means to open her heart. Even though she's Jewish, she begins to see a prison escapee, Anton, not as a Nazi, but as a lonely, frightened young man with feelings not unlike her own.

In Anton, Patty finds someone who softens the pain of her own father's rejection and who appreciates her in a way her mother never will. While patriotic feelings run high, Patty risks losing family, friends — even her freedom — for this dangerous friendship. It is a risk she has to take and one she will have to pay a price to keep.

About the Author:

Bette Greene's first novel, Summer of My German Soldier, hailed as "an exceptionally fine novel" by the New York Times, has become a modern classic. Published in 1973, this beloved book has inspired an Emmy Award#150;winning television film and a recent stage musical. The first book in the Philip Hall series, Philip Hall Likes Me. I Reckon Maybe., was a 1975 Newbery Honor Book and a 1974 New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year. Born in a small Arkansas town, Bette Greene has lived in Memphis, Tennessee, Paris, France, and New York City. She now lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
