Publisher's Summary

When 16-year-old Helmuth Hubner listens to the BBC news on an illegal short-wave radio, he quickly discovers Germany is lying to the people. But when he tries to expose the truth with leaflets, he's tried for treason. Sentenced to death and waiting in a jail cell, Helmuth's story emerges in a series of flashbacks that show his growth from a naive child caught up in the patriotism of the times, to a sensitive and mature young man who thinks for himself.

    "Great Book"
    Would you listen to The Boy Who Dared again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to this book again because it's a great reminder of the type of tyranny that exists in the world.

    Story
    "Thought provoking book!"
    Would you listen to The Boy Who Dared again? Why?

    Yes. It was interesting and matched with history.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Boy Who Dared?

    I really was amazed that he stood up for his beliefs with honor at the end and purposefully took on as much blame as he could so that his friends would get a lighter sentence.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he stood up for his beliefs at the trial without excusing himself.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The same as the title of the book.

    "this is a fantastic book"

    I had to read this for school but didn't want to but after reading the first 50 pages I wanted more and more but over all this is a great book and if you get the audio tape the reader has a great German accident.
