This book is soooo sad! The part that is really sad is when Lola's Babica dies and her mother dies and her father dies.

This books is short and sweet. A book about the Holocast combined with a girls fight for survival was a great combination.

It was ok, not what I expected. It is clearly a child's book and why it was in the adult section under war with a YA label on it, I don't understand, this is a book suitably written for a 4th grader. I suppose the author did not wish to write a full length book complete with details for an

adult audience.

It is also very dead panned and unemotional. She simply states ' They shot my mother ' and that was that.

It is a good introduction to the horrors of Poland between 1939-1945 for a young reader, an adult with a need for or love of history or personal memoirs will be left wanting.
