“A middle-grade novel about a Jewish family that escapes Paris during WWII and moves to a small town in the Loire Valley that happens to be on the "right" side of the demarcation line for Nazi occupation. A great "boy book" with lots of suspense but not too much horror.”jc wrote this review Friday, June 21, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The characters are Gustave, Jean-Paul, Marcel, philippe, Nicole.
It is about a boy who is Jewish in France and it is around the time the Nazi Germany was invading, his parents decided they would move from their friends to live in a small town other than Parris.
The author did a really good job of representing what it would be like to live back then.”
“Black Radishes is about a kid who gets out of occupied France with his parents but has to go back to get his cousins and aunt. The main lead is a kid named Gustave, some other people worth noting are Gustave's parents, and his friend Nicole. The author's writing while great is a bit rushed I mean the part where Gustave and his dad get there cousins out of occupied France is like 30 pages
“ Marcel and Gustave's families are Jews. They have always been safe. Jews were just other people with different beliefs, right? But now they are not safe anymore. Gustave's family move to the countryside, to avoid the Nazis. When Gustave meets Nicole, a girl working against the Nazis to help smuggle Jews to safety, Gustave learns about love, fighting for what's right, and the epic battle of the risk of one's safety and the love for someone else.”Lena wrote this review Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
