Shadow on the Mountain is a 2016 Rebecca Caudill nominee. It’s a historical fiction book about the country of Norway while occupied by German troops during World War II. The main character, Espen, begins working as a courrier and eventually a spy for the Norwegian resistance movement, but endangers his family and his own life in the process. Although I felt the first half of the book was a little slow, by the end, I couldn’t put the book down. Lots of historical information and suspense!
