    great story!

    Gentlehands was a very good book and a good way to learn about the Holocaust from a teenager's perspective. I really liked this book because I could make a connection with the main character, Buddy, since we are the same age {it was very relatable with my age being the same as the main character's age, Buddy.} Buddy is a 16 year-old who is of middle class and dates an 18 year-old over the summer who is of the higher class. He of course tries to impress her by spending time with his "rich" grandfather, without knowing too much about him. Later on in the story you find out something which turns the whole story around and affects everyone in the story. I understood this story very well and it was easy to read. The end was a little shocking and I wished it had gone on a little longer; but overall it was a very good story.

    Gentlehands

    In the book Gentlehands there is a boy named Buddy Boyle, and a girl named Skye Pennington. Now Buddy comes from a poor family and Skye is from a big wealthy family!! She comes every summer to her house is Seaville! Buddy's parents disapprove of Skye becuase she is so wealthy, but Buddy disregaurds them! Buddy also comes very close to his Grandfater Trenker. His mother doesn't like her father becuase her mother said a lot of bad things about him! In the end a dectective accuses Buddy's grandfather of being a Nazi that played Opera music while he tourted Jews. If you want to find out if he gets accused then you will have to read the book! I hope you enjoy it!

    M.E. Kerr has out done herself once again!

    Gentlehands is one of the greatest books I have ever read. Buddy Boyle goes through some hard times during his summer vacation... He learns valuable lessons about life and responsibility. It's a good book for any teenager.

    Gentlehands is a masterpiece for young people.

    I would recommend this book as it gives young people an insight into the horrors of NAZI Germany. Gentlehands only gives a brief, but deep understanding of how events can always come back to haunt you even years later and how even NAZI officers are human beings! M.E.Kerr is able to give over this introduction by using the relationships of youth to understand the issue of the Holocaust and whilst moving the issue away from basic text book history into a world that is as relevant today, this thought bending booking will shock and amaze. Afterall, if you think that NAZI's walk around with shaved heads, this book will make you think again!

    I loved it!

    I really liked this book. The ending was totally unpredictable. I think that you should read it if you like sad stories or realistic fiction and such.
