    very good It was a uick read but very heartbreaking The poems in the back were also very good For a longer review check out my bookstagram mobssessedwithbooks

    This book was very good I love learning about World War Two The only reason I docked a star was because it felt too repetitive I know that it is a story meant for children but it got annoying at some points I loved the pictures at the end especially the one of Elly graduating college

  3. Gerry Gerry says:

    It's tempting to give this book a sympathy vote because its author endured a horrific experience and survived to become a productive citizen and generous supporter of others experiencing inhumane treatment However brief as it was the narrative was repetitive and disjointed I suppose one could excuse repetitive as Scholastic has published this for students; but where were Scholastic's editors when Elly's random thoughts were becoming a novel? The book reads like someone gathered up a number of rough drafts and bound them together with no particular plan sure they would sell because the account is authentic primary source I would regret that I bought this disappointing book but for the fact that Elly Gross donates all proceeds from her books to charity

    I found this book in the local free little library and decided I would trade for it I like WWII things and this looks like something that I can hang on to and give to my niece when she's a little older I have family on both sides Some from my father's side are of Jewish decent and were in Poland Austria and Germanyand some from my mother's side are German and could possibly have even been part of the Nazi party We don't know So I feel a sense of connection with them The book was a littlestrange She did appear to be writing this like a journal than a book but it was published for children so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt here and just say that was what caused it I did like what I read and I think that a lot people should read journals and first hand accounts of the POW camps It gives us insight to things we couldn't possibly imagine I gave the book 45 because it was somewhat good in its way the author was conveying the emotion of being a child during the war but then it was also sort of just a jamble I think I will look into books by her and see if they are the same

    This book was uite good i thought it was a bit sad in some bits learning what the mean nazis did to the Jews though

  6. Alicia Alicia says:

    This book wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be Alot of the same information was repeated over and over again

    This book was a bit short and took me only about one hour to read I actually have no idea why I started reading it in the first place it just randomly popped up on my kindle I think it was a hold I placed like a long time ago? it was about a Jewish holocaust and was personally really boring for me since I've read way too many books about the Jewish holocaust this book is kind of like Anne Frank to say truthfully It was pretty much about a girl named Elly and her her life in brief before the war being in the war and in the concentration camp I cannot imagine living in such conditions surviving on dirty potato peels being sent to work a some kind of factory where she got ill from paint fumes being rescued and then returning to normal life That's pretty much the summary I wasn't exactly touched by it because well the writing was so eh fit for an 4th grader or 5th grader So pretty much if you want to indulge yourself in some World War Two concentration camp horror read this book

  8. Kyle Kyle says:

    I think it is a good book I like to learn about history and things that took place cause it makes it seem like I could be in there shoes and see what they went through Elly lost her mother and her brother and she really doesn't have no one because when they got sent away they got split up and usually it would be the end for mostI would be lost if I lost any of my brothers or my sister I would die but to see how others made it through it it must have been really hard I don't really like what took place back then but its fascinating to read about and how one person made a difference for many other peoples lifes

  9. Emma Falkner Emma Falkner says:
