This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel is a beautiful story about a boy and girl in occupied France during World War II  with an unlikely connection.  The book, written from alternating perspectives, is rich in detail and character development, and offers a somewhat unique perspective of young people during this time. The book is difficult to put down---I read it from start to finish on a transatlantic flight and hardly noticed the long trip.
