City of Thieves by David Benioff

City of Thieves.jpg

This quick-reading and very entertaining novel tells the story of a Russian teen trapped in Leningrad during World War II, under siege by the German army. Caught out of doors after curfew, he and a Russian soldier recently deserted from the army are ordered to retrieve a dozen eggs for a bigwig's daughter's wedding. Getting the eggs, escaping the Germans, and surviving make this an excellent novel. Check catalog availability.
