Odette’s Secrets by Maryann MacDonald
For Jews in Nazi-occupied Paris, every day brings new dangers. So when
Odette’s father is thrown into a work camp and the Nazis suspect her
mother of helping the Resistance, Odette is sent to the French
countryside until it is safe to return. On the surface, Odette leads the
life of a regular girl, going to school, doing chores, even attending
Catholic masses with other children. But inside, she is burning with
secrets for the life she left behind, and the identity she must hide at
all costs. Yet when the war ends, the cost of keeping secrets takes an
unexpected toll: can Odette return to Paris as a Jew, or has she changed
too much? Inspired by the life of the real Odette Meyer, this moving
free-verse novel is a story of triumph over adversity.
