This was a fascinating and thought provoking read Holocaust books that I've read in the past have been through the eyes of adults In this book we experience it mainly through the round robin letters of a group of school girls who slowly become aware of some of what's going on but also increasingly conscious of the police state they're in trying to put a positive spin on their lives The two main characters are a Jewish girl who didn't even know she was Jewish who is sent to England and a German girl who risks her life to help the special needs children in a secret school There were a lot of characters and if I read it again I'd keep a crib sheet so I could keep track but certainly worth a read If I could give this book a 412 I would The research that has gone into the book is worth 5 stars alone The reason for my 412 stars is because the book covers a subject which is both horrifying and sad The treatment of the Jew during the Second World War has been well documented both in nonfiction and fiction This book is well written and is great for the YA reader but not for me as l read for enjoyment and the subject matter is sad and depressing I enjoyed the characters and the way the book was written in a series of letters and through a series of different points of view from both England and Germany A YA will learn a lot from this book and have a greater understanding of the suffering felt by the Jews and their families and friends I learnt most of my information as a YA in the 1970's watching a TV programme called 'World At War' the images that l saw on it still haunt me today which is why it is a subject l shy away from when looking a book to read for entertainment I tend to devour books based during WWII and this was no exception From the first page you're pulled into the atmosphere and sense of what's to come This is a very moving story very difficult to put down I enjoyed the book especially as it was based on a true story
