9781475002041: Too Close to the Sun: a Dutch boy becomes a man during WWII

"Too Close to the Sun" tells the story of how a Dutch boy, Wim Diephof, becomes a man during World War II. He demonstrates through his participation in the Dutch resistance how a normal transition from teenage years to manhood turns out to be a daunting journey. During the coldest winter in years, known as the Hunger Winter of Holland, Wim and his best friends face gnawing hunger and the perils of a world at war. As he makes courageous attempts to find food, and deal with his concerns for his family, Wim learns about forgiveness and sacrifice along the stormy path to adulthood. Wim’s dream to become a pilot is fulfilled, but his questions about God may never be answered.
