I thought the book In My Enenmys House was a really great book. I got it from the library and I just had to get it. I was sick all weekend so I read it in a few days. I read alot so I'm used to reading fast. The scariest part in the book was when Marisa was screaming out in Hebrew when she was dreaming and the Nazi family could have cought her.

I am now a junior in high school, but read this book for a book report in freshman history. My teacher, Mrs. K., picked me as the only one to read it, because she thought I would enjoy it most out of her 120 students. It is one of the best books I have EVER read on the Holocaust. This book gives the reader a great visual, and really depicts what life was like during WWII for the Jews. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a great suspense novel!

Although I thought that the author wrote this book very well, I think that she could have gone in a bit more depth towards that beginning of the book. For the first, say, four or five chapters, I was not exactly fond of the book, but as the story progressed, I began to really get into the story. The topic of this book was a bit disturbing, but as the author pointed out, rather subtely, you need to remember, so something as horrible as the Holocaust, so that it does not occur ever again. One other suggestion for the author is to make clear what an 'action' was. Overall, this novel was well written, and I really liked the way Marissa's feelings were strongly expressed throughout the story. Excellant work! :-)

I loved this book, In My Enemy's House. I want to know what happened to Marisa & Shmuel later on in life & if Yehuda & Fanny survived. Did Shmuel & Marisa get married? Please, Carol MAtas write a sequal to Marisa's life!!

In My Enemy's House is one of the best books I have ever read. I would recomend this book to anyone who likes reading about the holocaust. This book shows the life of a girl trying to life in a world she does not understand. It gives a sence of faith to God and having hope when everything around her is being destoyed. She deales with losing her family and the one she loves. This is the best book ever!

Marissa is a blond hair blue eyed girl who could easily pass of for a polish girl, which during the times of the Holocost, was a good idea. Her, her family, and her friends all get split up in this horrible time and she is sent off to Germany where she is to stay and work for one of the head Nazi's. She goes through many tough times living with them in their house and hearing about the horrible things they are doing to all of the Jews. Marisa becomes good friends with Charolotte, the man she is living with daughter, and they share secrets about everything, including how Charlotte is seeing a boy who is in a group who is against Hitler. Marisa helps her get through her tough times when her father finds this out. Eventually Marisa is sent off to a factory to work and thinks that she will never see Charolotte again, but they do. I think this was a terrific story and it also teaches you about how times were for the Jews.
