Really Interesting!

Review by Alma

This book is about a boy named Maurice and his life during the Holocaust. Life is really scary for him, as at the beginning of the book, he's basically just ushered outside his house to another place, without much warning, and from then on, life just gets really strange, he moves to a lot of different places, depending on where is safe and where isn't. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes historical graphic novels like the PJ Our Way choice Hidden.
