This book is about a girl who gets taken by the Nazis. She has to leave her house, her friends, her belongings when a group of Nazis come to take her and her family away. They are taken to the local prison, which is crowded with Jews and Gypsies. She meets some new friends, she finds some old friends. She and her mother are taken to a new camp. There, they are sent with some lucky people to be extras in movies with Hitler’s favorite actress, but she finds that it is not what she expected.
I like this book because of the characters. They were able to be nice and even make jokes when they were in one of the worst situations ever. There was a sense of dreadfulness that hung throughout this book. The entire plot was very excellent. The contrast between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ evened out in the end. I find that it was a good book for one to learn about history and enjoy it at the same time. I don’t recommend it for anyone under the age of 13-14.
