"The Pirates of Cologne hooked me from the first page! Dinah Mack has crafted a gripping, gorgeously researched story about World War II, told from the little-known perspective of a group of unsung heroes—teenage boys who escaped Hitler Youth to form their own resistance group. Sebastian’s tale is both an important historical document and a compelling coming-of-age novel about defiance, friendship, truth and the impossible choice between family loyalty and doing what’s right. An irresistible and timely read for all ages!" — Dori Ostermiller author of Outside the Ordinary World"
"The Pirates of Cologne is a book for our times: a gripping, inspirational story about youth and resistance that asks all the hard questions about what it means to do the right thing. What would you have done, if you’d been German under Hitler? And what will you do now? You won’t be able to finish this book without wondering." — Catherine Newman author of One Mixed Up Night and Catastrophic Happiness"
