* * * * * Stars (Amazing)
A young, rich boy moves from his hometown to the “out-with” a smaller mansion across from a concentration camp. With no children near him, he makes friends with a Jewish boy who lives across the fence. Never touching or playing, just talking. They often compared one another’s lives. I liked the book because it sounds historically accurate. It is a heart touching story, and just how it explains everything at the end. I really don’t dislike much to anything in the story. I really enjoyed the book. A must read!
