This is a hard-hitting fact based story about a Jewish boy who hid in the Warsaw ghettos during WWII until his mother was killed when he hid out with different gangs of Jewish orphans. Written for Middle school it will be read with interest by all ages of good readers who can cope with difficult truths. This boy had a hard time for a long time and the story tells it just as it is.
I read this to my children for our homeschool unit study on WWII. It is very exciting and exasperating. You think he is out of trouble but then he is in the ditch again! I would only recommend parents to read this with their children younger than the ninth grade. It has a couple of situations that you might be prepared to explain to anyone younger. Overall, I am glad we read it. My children are glad I read it to them also.
