It's been two years since fifteen-year-old Roberto was kidnapped and forced to work in a German labor camp. After finally escaping, he's made his way back to Italy. Roberto is desperate to return to the safety of his family, but how can he turn his back on the war while so many people are suffering? Roberto joins the resistance movement, and smuggles guns and secret information to rebel fighters. Every mission takes him closer to home, but every mission is even more dangerous than the last. Will Roberto survive and make his way home?
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.
