This book is heartfelt, but interesting. It tells the story of Jews through the eyes of a ten-year-old, which is a weird thing to think about. By that I mean that there were kids who couldn't grasp exactly why they had to hide from the Nazis and such. This book kind of reminds me of the story of Anne Frank, actually.

loved this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This book is incredible. It's well written and gives you an understanding of the impacts of the Holocaust. Lowry wrote in a way that helped me visualize each scene and each character. This book can really make you think deeply. I strongly recommend this book to other readers.

I read this book for the first time in grade 5, and it completely changed my world view, and forever impacted how I think of the Holocaust. It is an incredible book that everyone should read.
