"Orphan Monster Spy: A Novel"

OrphanMonsterSpy_book.jpg
Aired on Thursday, May 3rd.

We speak with the British novelist, Matt Killeen, whose first novel is just out now. "Orphan Monster Spy" is a YA novel that offers a "powerful, bleak, and penetrating portrait of an isolated young woman excelling in unimaginable danger" (Kirkus Reviews). It's the exciting tale of a young woman named Sarah -- a blonde, blue-eyed, and Jewish 15-year-old living in 1939 Germany...who (thanks in part to her "non-Jewish" looks) becomes part of the secret resistance against the Third Reich.
