When her home is destroyed in the Luftwaffe bombing of the North Strand, Dublin in 1941, Grace Ryan is forced to move in with relatives in a different part of the city. There she meets Barry Malone, an English boy sent to neutral Ireland to escape the terrible air raids on his native city of Liverpool. A friendship develops Barry begins to suspect their teacher, Mr. Pawlek, of spying for the Nazis, and he and Grace attempt to find proof. But what starts as an exciting challenge becomes increasingly risky, and their friendship is put to the test when their very lives hang in the balance. ""Gallagher crafts a tale that is as much about adjusting to loss and change in wartime as it is about having adventures.""-Kirkus Reviews. ""This pulse-throbbing novel drenched in suspense, mystery, and survival tactics introduces readers to the terrifying effects of World War II... A fast-paced coming-of age adventure story... Mention it to your youth who simply enjoy well-written, spine-tingling fiction, junior sleuth tales, and life-and-death scenarios.""-VOYA
