    Fabulous!

    This was an amazing book for our whole family. We all really enjoyed the book. I once heard someone say that prejudice is taught and learned. If life is looked at openly and people learn to form their own opinions then this world would be a better place. People would then hopefully stop judging for all of the wrong reasons of which were instilled in them and have a more open outlook on life. We want our child and our family to look at things openly and especially for our child to look at things for what they are not to judge by the color of someones skin or their backround, or religious beliefs. This brought such great topics of conversation. Our children must learn the past so they can be openminded about our future.

    I give these book four stars. I think this is one of the best Holocaust books I have ever read. Because this is the only Holocaust book I have read. But this makes me won't to read more Holocaust books. One of the reasons I like the book so much was because it was a true life story.

    The book is about this girl if she could find four perfect pebbles almost exactly the same size and shape it meant that her family would remain whole. Mama and Papa and she and Albert would survive Bergen-Belsen. The four of them might have even survived the Nazis' attempt to destroy every last Jew in Europe.

    Following Hitler's rise to power, the Blumenthal Family-father, mother, Marion and her brother Albert- were trapped in Nazi German. They managed eventually to get to Holland, but soon thereafter it was occupied by the Nazis. For the next six and a half years the Blumenthal's were forced to live in refugee, transit, and prison camp. Their story is one of the horror and hardship, but it is also a story of courage, hope, and the will to survive.

    Love.

    This book is soo amazing. I haven't finished it yet but so far I love it! This woman, Marion, is sooo wonderful! I just met her today. She came and spoke to my school and shared her hardships and experiences with us. It was definately a very emotional experience for everyone in the room. I know it changed my entire outlook on life and how I take everything for granted. I just have so much respect for her. And it breaks my heart that anyone could do that to any living being.

    I liked this book because it was good and sad!

    I thought that when people were in the Refugee Camp, people tried to escape over the barbed wire fence they got electrocuted and the people didn't have anything to eat so they ate the unburied bodies. I thought that that was so sad!
