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.
Good book on the Holocaust experience. Very short chapters, a fast read and appropriate for older children interested in this subject. I wanted to know more about what happened to them after the war so an epilogue would have been great.
A powerful, first-hand look at a 13 year olds life in a concentration camp where cruelty and suffering is a way of life; A bowl of watered down soup or a potato peel is a delicacy and a decent pair of shoes or a scrap of tattered clothing is something to dream about. A must read for everyone. Let us never forget the victims of the Holocaust. This is a book that is suitable for both teenagers and adults.
Wonderful book...I read this in one night as I couldn't put it down. She describes how they were taken by the Gestapo and describes much more in detail her life in the camps. Very sad stories but a great and worthwhile read...highly recommended.
