Book Spotlight: How Huge the Night by Heather Munn and Lydia Munn

About the book:
Fifteen-year-old Julien Losier just wants to fit in. But when his family moves to a small village in central France in hopes of outrunning the Nazis, he is suddenly faced with bigger challenges than the taunting of local teens. Nina Krenkel left her country to obey her father’s dying command: Take your brother and leave Austria. Burn your papers. Tell no one you are Jews. Alone she arrives in Tanieux, France, dangerously ill and in despair. Thrown together, Julien begins to feel the terrible weight of the looming conflict and Nina fights to survive. As France falls, Julien struggles with doing what is right, even if it is not enough, and wonders if he can save Nina.

Based on the true story of the town of Le Chambon, honored by Israel for rescuing Jews from the Holocaust.
