In the story Projekt 1065 by Alan Gratz, the main character Michael is the son of the Irish ambassador to Nazi Germany and lives in Berlin with his parents. Like every other boy at his school, Michael is a part of the Hitler Youth. However, he and his family have a huge secret: they are spies. One day, Michael hears about Projekt 1065, a jet being created by one of Michael’s classmates’ fathers, from a downed British pilot he is helping. Michael decides that he needs to become friends with this kid in order to steal his father’s blueprints.
Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and I had so much fun reading this book. It was full of action and tough decisions, especially for a thirteen year old. If you enjoy reading historical fiction, then I would definitely advise you to read this book.
