Praise for The War Outside A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2018A 2019 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults PickA 2018 BCCB Bulletin Blue Ribbon TitleA 2019 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People
"Once again, Monica Hesse delivers an incredibly compelling and beautifully researched novel. The War Outside vividly brings readers into an underrepresented and dark period of American history. A must-read for fans of historical fiction."--Ruta Sepetys, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Monica Hesse takes a setting we think we understand and shifts it in an important way...a tightly plotted exploration of the consequences of fear."--The New York Times Book Review

"Monica Hesse's The War Outside pierces the heart with its exceptional story of family, friends and country...Riveting and meticulously researched, this story reverberates with authentic voices as it explores adolescent growth under dreadful circumstances."--BookPage

* "Teens and adults interested in WWII books, especially situations that haven't been written about extensively, will want to experience this story."--SLC, starred review

"timely...[Hesse] again uses a well-researched historical backdrop to tell a powerful coming-of-age story."--The Washington Post

"Hesse's books are like time machines-vehicles that help us explore our past."--Mashable

"I did not expect this book to knock me off my feet with its lyrical brilliance, vivid storyline, and heart wrenching ending. Let's just say, if all historical fiction was like this book, it'd be my most-read genre."
--Book Riot
