Blood on the Beach
When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he's got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn't easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can't complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends.

Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian--the foster brother he hasn't seen in five years. Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew.
He's still kind hearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids.
But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what's really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives. One thing I love in YA is strong male friendships.
CM Magazine: Blood on the Beach.
World War II is raging. Like the other boys in his school, Michael is a member of the Hitler Youth. But Michael has a secret.
He and his parents are spies. Michael despises everything the Nazis stand for. But he joins in the Hitler Youth's horrific games and book burnings, playing the part so he can gain insider knowledge.
When Michael learns about Projekt , a secret Nazi war mission, things get even more complicated. He must prove his loyalty to the Hitler Youth at all costs -- even if it means risking everything he cares about. This is an incredibly taut thriller, made even more engrossing and gut-wrenching due to the fact that so many of the events are real.
Michael is a young boy in Germany, the son of Irish spies and a spy in his own right , trying to do all that he possibly can to help defeat the Nazis and end the war.
