I would recommend it to anyone from the ages of 12 and above who is interested in learning about the holocaust. It was a very informational book and the main character, Misha, could relate to what the actual people went through during the holocaust. For example, many people tried to hide but everyone was eventually found and brought to the Ghettos like Misha. To me, this book was an 8 out of 10.

Overall, this book was great and it taught me alot about what people were feeling throughout this horrible
