The Boy Behind The Wall
A page-turning thriller for 11+ readers set on either side of the Berlin Wall, perfect for Alex Rider and CHERUB fans.
What would you risk for a friend you’ve never met…?
In the 1960s Berlin, the Wall is everywhere. It cuts through streets, parks, and even houses. Teenagers Harry and Jakob live on either side of the divide.
In West Berlin, American Harry witnesses the brutal shooting of a boy trying to escape over the Wall into the West and decides to emulate his comic book heroes and help those in the East however he can. On the other side in East Berlin, Jakob is the adopted son of a high-up Stasi officer, feeling suffocated by the rules of a strictly regimented society and desperate to find his real family.
When Jakob finds Harry’s message over the Wall, he grasps the opportunity. The boys begin a secret friendship, evading the authorities by using lemon juice as invisible ink to share hidden messages. They soon realise that a bold plot to carve a tunnel under the wall is the only way out for Jakob – and it’s time to put their friendship to the test. Just how much are they prepared to risk for each other – and freedom?
