Author: John Boyne
Reviewer: Seleena D
This story is a historical fiction book that a few of my friends gave great reviews. I heard that it was hard to put the story down when I began to read it. Have you ever been in a situation where you have been misled by a friend? If so, wait until you read about what happened to Bruno!
This story is about Bruno and his family who moved from Berlin, Germany to Poland. Bruno's father was a commander of a prison camp, and Bruno did not know what his father did at work. Bruno became friends with Shumel who was the same age as him and lived behind a fence and wore striped pajamas. Bruno promised to help Shumel find his papa. At one point, Bruno will go to Shumel's side of the fence, and tell readers about what he sees.
I recommend this book to anyone. It was one of the best I have ever read.
