Fritz Braun’s life is turning upside down. His grandfather is dead, and everything he has ever believed in is a lie. He has suddenly become the keeper of the book - God’s book - and must teach other followers what he learns from the book. Through the book, Fritz makes many friends, but with it also comes a huge responsibility. He must protect himself and the book, but what about his friends?
The Truth Keeper is an amazing book filled with betrayal and tension. I would recommend this for kids no younger than 12 because of the amount of bloodshed. Although fiction with a bit of fantasy, The Truth Keeper is a thrilling book that represents World War II well. Characters are vivid, and Fritz is a dynamic person, making him very relatable. The Truth Keeper grabs the reader’s attention from the first page, making it a great read for reluctant readers.
