A captivating and interesting read. As I enjoy historical fiction, this was a good read, though at first I found it hard to keep track of the characters due to the constant switching of perspective. Compared to other books in the genre, it integrated facts very well to create a convincing story. I liked the perspective of children and teenagers, which showed how terrible the effects of the war were, and the beliefs of the soldier do a great job of representing the ideology of the Nazi Party. A well written book, with the right level of vocabulary for the age group. When you begin to predict the ending, it becomes upsetting as the characters begin to think it is all over for them. One great thing about the book is that I believe that even if you know the ending from the beginning, it is still a worthy read. The only criticism is that it is hard to keep track of all the characters and some seem underdeveloped.
