Teen Fiction NAPOLI

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

In the sequel to Stones in Water, Fire in the Hills by Donna Jo Napoli, 14-year-old Roberto returns to Italy from Nazi work camps and transforms from a pacifist to a member of the Italian resistance, the partigiani. The novel spotlights a lesser-known aspect of WWII and in Roberto delivers a hero whose battles demonstrate both the brutal devastation of war and an inspiring capacity for hope.
