I loved this book. It was really good and when every chapter ended I wanted to read more. I would stay up late at night reading under the covers trying to get as much reading in before I fell asleep. The book stopped at cliff hangers and also really made me realize that back then Jews had it really hard back them and rules were really harsh on all of them. I am glad that it is not like that anymore. This book taught me lessons and really made me want to read it again..... I think I will. I really liked this book.
I think that this book is suitable for many people. The story concept is s little hard to understand so I would recommend this book for ages 9 and up because it has a some material that is a little hard to understand. This book is about a 9 out of 10 and if you like books about hitler and the nazis and just books that make you want to read more and more than this is the book for you.
I loved this book and I hope you read it
This is great, Kira!
