The Romeo and Juliet Code by Phoebe Stone
As the bombs continue to fall in London during WW II, Felicity's parents bring her to Maine to live with her father's mother, brother and sister. She knows it will be strange, but doesn't understand why her uncle brushes off her father's embrace and neither he or her grandmother will talk to her mother.
When her uncle receives letters from her father in Portugal and insists they are from someone else, Felicity knows she must find a way to see those letters and try to figure out where her parents are and what they are doing. Recommended for grades 4 - 7.
