This is a wonderful book told from the perspective of a 12-year-old Jewish boy who lived in Prague during WW II. His father was taken by the SS and brutally murdered while he is sent to a camp with his mother and sister. This book tells his experiences in that camp, and while not as horrible as those in other camps, it is still not a good one. However, he does find the sun on certain days and the three people in his family survive, despite the odds against them, even avoiding several deportations to Auschwitz. This is a very age-appropriate discussion of that time period and the horrible things people to each other. ( )
