This is a GREAT read. I read it in one day. I would not exactly categorize this with Young Adult, though some would. It is graphic in details. If you are looking for a "true story" read instead of a work of fiction this is it. Also recommended to the reader who is trying to learn more about what daily life was like in the Concentration camps.

A very moving book. I was actually surprised at how much it affected me. I think it is a worthwile read for young adults. However, I would reccomend reading it ahead of time before you have your child or class read it.

This Holocaust memoir describes what happens to Elli Friedmann who is 13 when the Nazis invade Hungary in 1944. "I Have Lived A Thousand Years" is a bittersweet chronicle of the power of faith and perseverance. The author never lost hope that she would somehow survive the horrors that she witnessed day after day. Her testament is a worthy addition to the literature of the Holocaust, and one that younger readers will be able to identify with.

This might be a little hard for younger readers to take, but for the more mature ones, this is a wonderfully written first hand account of the Holocaust.
