a very poignant story of a boy who 'escaped' from a concentration camp. His trip to where, he doesn't know, gives so much insight to what would be going through a child during this era of time. He doesn't know anything about the outside world. This is often times humorous and then sad at others. It is a powerful story that should be read by all. There aren't really any EXCITING parts but plenty of in depth story. Mrs. Holm brings a story to paper that will not be quickly forgotten.
I ordered this book after seeing the movie "My name is David" which was based on this book. The book was intended for a pre-teen audience but, I enjoyed it very much! David is a young boy who is raised in the gray world of a post WWII prison camp. His escape and introduction to the world where he experiences the beauty of Gods creation is a fascinating read. The story has some great twists and turns and I would fully recommend it.
