The Sacrifice: Book 1 in the Robert Wells Trilogy
Allen & Unwin
A graphic novel set in Melbourne in the 1940s features Robert, an older adolescent, and his family coping with changes caused by the onset of World War II. Several threads capture the times. Robert tries to help a German immigrant family but earns distrust from other people. As a pacifist, he objects to serving in the military while seeing his brother sent off to fight. This graphic novel would suit those who enjoy this format and the recreation of a historical period.
