    This book is for people that are interested in learning about the Holocaust and history about Nazi Germany.It was kind of confusing part way through the book but in the end is amazing and it held my interest to keep reading.Most books are “and they lived happily ever after” but this book had a mystery at the end that would keep you guessing if there will be a whole series or just stop there.(OVERALL)
    3 star book in my opinion.

    This sounds a lot like The Klipfish Code

    Well, yes, they are both set in Nazi-occupied Norway. But how do the plot and characters compare? Kate Davie

    I think Shadow on the Mountain is a great book and it will teach you a lot about WW2 and the Nazis and I would recommend this book for 5th grade and up to 10th grade

    This book is great for readers who like action, thrillers, and expedition. I recommend this book to 8th graders all the way up to 10th grade. Margi Preus has changed readibng for me because she uses her words in a special way that fits the story and makes it better and better as the story goes on.

    That’s quite a compliment to an author. You might want to check out her web site at . You will find information about her other books there, and at least one of them sounds as though it might be an excellent reading choice for you. Kate Davie

    This book was pretty good, and I’m surprised that not many people are here discussing it, but I love the time era, because it’s so interesting to learn about, and find out how different it was, even though it’s not that long ago.

    I would recommend this book people who are mature because if you are in second grade you will not understand this book because if you don’t know who the Nazis are than this book will make no sense.This book is very suspenseful and sometimes funny. For example when Espen mentions the germans skiing he says that they wipeout all day long and when Espen go’s to deliver secret newspapers he gets cot by his friend. Espen has a lot on his mind and a lot going on. If you like historical fiction books this is one.

    This book is good if you want to learn about world war II and the Nazis invading Norway.
