Read full description of the books:
Got to page 33 and realized that this book was going to make me weep buckets. I skipped to the end. Oh yeah, Hankie City. The why the 4 star rating you ask?
Because this book is very important. It's not just another Holocaust book. It's real, it's visceral and it's told from the POV of a child born in Germany in 1925 who is friends with a Jewish boy who is his upstairs neighbor, which makes what happens to the family and the boy that much more powerful to the reader.
It is more powerful if you think the book is non-fiction, as I did when I started to read it. Just because it isn't doesn't mean that it can't teach a reader not familiar with the Holocaust of how something that horrible can happen and how it happens to regular, everyday folk.
Incredibly sad, but important book. I couldn't finish it, but recognize the power and need for books like this. 4, sad, but true, stars.
