Warriors in the Crossfire by Nancy Bo Flood

A fictional account of the invasion of Saipan in the south Pacific during WWII as told through the eyes of a native boy and his half-Japanese cousin.

For the history-buff teen, Warriors in the Crossfire is one to check out. Meticulously researched and well-plotted, author Nancy Bo Flood makes a forgotten incident from WWII come alive with poetic imagery and no shortage of action and adventure.

For me, personally, it didn’t grip me as much as I wanted it to, but war stories in general aren’t really my thing. I did feel like I learned something about history and certainly appreciate Nancy Bo Flood’s high quality writing. I’ll be passing this one on to a bookish 10-year-old and her YA-aficionado mom.
