The final installment in Carla Jablonski's Sydney Taylor Honor-winning Resistance Trilogy.

World War II thunders to a conclusion in this third and final installment of Jablonski and Purvis' critically-acclaimed historical trilogy. As the Allied Forces move to retake France from its Nazi invaders, siblings Sophie, Paul, and Marie Tessier must risk their lives once more and journey into the belly of the beast: Paris. They are on a mission to deliver top-secret intel for the Resistance movement . . . they are its youngest agents.

A perfect mix of deft emotional storytelling and hair-raising, historically accurate wartime adventure make this final chapter of the Resistance Trilogy the most satisfying yet.


Praise for Victory

"The storyline is brisk and edgy, complementing the worn nerves of people who have lived through war. Purvis's illustrations have a pop-art appeal, not unlike the work of Roy Lichtenstein. Fans of graphic art and WWII will appreciate this book, as well as reluctant readers who are interested in historical fiction."—Katie Mitchell, VOYA

"Jablonski wraps up her compelling story, which takes place during World War II . . . The story reaches a satisfying visual and emotional finale."—Barbara M. Moon, School Library Journal

"The conclusion to Jablonski and Purvis's Resistance trilogy is a fast-paced and gritty piece of work . . . The artwork's bright colors and somewhat stiff lines emphasize the blazing emotions being tossed around. While the righteousness of the cause is never questioned, the authors do a good job of making it clear how bloody and morally messy even the most noble fighting can be."—Publishers Weekly
