Most of “Paper Hearts” takes place in a concentration camp called Auschwitz during the Holocaust. The main characters are Fania and Zlatka, two girls who started off strangers and became best friends. Together, they try their hardest to fit in and stay unnoticed in order to survive, which is no easy task.  



I enjoyed "Paper Hearts" because once I started reading, I could not stop. The plot is incredibly suspenseful, and kept me immersed throughout the book. Paper Hearts is described so vividly, I could almost picture myself there. 
Even though I really liked this book, there were some things that I would change. One thing I found unnecessarily confusing was how fast the plot moved. I had to pay attention because each chapter discussed a character's perspective. It can be confusing if you don’t pay attention to which character's perspective is discussed in each chapter. The format, although choppy, was the only downside of this book.
