Join our monthly book club for kids ages 9 – 12! This month we’re reading The Bicycle Spy by Yona Zeldis McDonough.

The Bicycle Spy is a World War II historical fiction novel about a boy trying to help the French resistance against the Nazis.

Marcel loves riding his bicycle, whether he’s racing through the streets of his small town in France or making bread deliveries for his parents’ bakery. He dreams of someday competing in the Tour de France, the greatest bicycle race. But ever since Germany’s occupation of France began two years ago, the race has been canceled. Now there are soldiers everywhere, interrupting Marcel’s rides with checkpoints and questioning.

When he later discovers that his friend’s entire family is in imminent danger, Marcel knows he can help — but it will involve taking a risky bicycle ride to pass along covert information. Can Marcel make the ride of his life?
