I can't remember ever reading a book that conveyed so much emotion, tragedy, love, optimism and indomitable will to persist and survive, in the language of a precocious teen-aged girl. I've read "Night" by Elie Wiesel, and other books about the holocaust, but this book moved me in a uniquely different way. It is as much a story of a family struggling to maintain their lives, their morality and their humanity, as it is a story of the holocaust. And it tells this story in the voice of the teen-aged girl who lived it. This is a book to be read by people of all ages, and makes an excellent subject for discussion in book clubs and classrooms. It is quite timely, given the tendencies toward hate and violence throughout the world, calling us to remember what these trends can lead to if we don't struggle against them. -TobyC
