All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Publisher Description:
During World War II, when her small Arkansas town becomes the site of a camp for German POWs, 12-year-old Patty learns what it means to open her heart. Although she's Jewish, she begins to see a prison escapee, Anton, not as a Nazi -- but as a lonely young man, a kindred spirit. And Patty is willing to risk losing everything -- even her freedom -- for the sake of their friendship. This thoughtful and hard-hitting novel has become a modern classic.

Contributor Bio(s): Like Beth Lambert, Bette Greene grew up in a small town in Arkansas. Her first novel, Summer of My German Soldier, won unanimous critical acclaim and became an immediate best-seller. Bette Greene lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.
