The Bicycle Spy

Review by danielleparr

I thought it was good the plot was ok and the ending was abrupt. The ending also didn't make the most sense. Overall it was ok just not amazing.

Great Historical Fiction

Review by StuG

This is a book about about a boy named Marcel who dreams of riding in the Tour de France. Marcel lives in France during WW2 and delivers message for the French Resistance and tries to save his friend. If you like history and bikes, read this book.
